Everything is a copy of a copy of a copy

Another article from a few years back for Sonic Router pointing towards this state of affairs -

Courtesy of none other than the big man himself, Rag & Bone Records' DJ Warlock.

"The concept of a record label in the sense it has existed up to this point is dead. The future of consuming music is getting it for free. That’s how it is. That’s how it’s going to be. There was a really interesting debate recently organised by Music Tank which stated that in this digital age, anything that can be copied has zero financial value, and anything that can’t has immense value. Thus music has no value but an artist (which can’t be copied) is incredibly valuable. Doesn’t look good for the record labels does it?"

Pearls of wisdom. Cyan say we never did a warn ya.
