I have found another article which holds excellent information about our topic. This one deals with the concept of music developing into a sort of utility, comparable to water or electricity. The authors believe that due to progressive changes in the music industry, productions of music will become a service, distributed for a fee. In reality this system is not dissimilar to to current models. The differences become apparent in the notion of universal availability, and a pre-set fee for connectivity without bandwidth limit.
The article touches on allot of really cool points, apart from their service based conclusion. It mainly focuses on prospective events and ramifications in the future of the music industry. I was very impressed with this piece; it mirrors allot of my ideas for our project.
