Jeff Tweedy's Tidbits About Music and the Internet

I'm a big fan of Wilco. Singer Jeff Tweedy was recently interviewed in Wired Magazine and among many eloquent tidbits, had this to say.

We live in a connected world now. Some find that frightening. If people are downloading our music, they're listening to it. The internet is like radio for us.

What if there was a movement to shut down libraries because book publishers and authors were up in arms over the idea that people are reading books for free? It would send a message that books are only for the elite who can afford them.

Stop trying to treat music like it's a tennis shoe, something to be branded. If the music industry wants to save money, they should take a look at some of their six-figure executive expense accounts. All those lawsuits can't be cheap, either.
