Politics and Music

Today, we published an article on our Foundry Group blog about the strange dance of politics and music.  Specifically, we’ve been following the royalty negotiations and legislative actions surrounding Pandora.

I’ve been an active participant in the debate regarding royalty streams for track plays for a long time.  I’ve never understood why the labels have been so resistant to let their customers actually discover their artists’ products, but then again, I don’t understand much of what the labels do.  In there lies the opportunity for the creation of good companies and investment in them like Topspin

I’d encourage you to check out our piece on the Foundry blog and join the discussion.
