He sure is a bloke that calls a spade a spade … well … more like a bloke that calls a spade a F@#$ing shovel.
So … he’s proposing that … everyone subscribes to music, like a tax & you come down on people hard, if they don’t pay it
Also not the perfect solution, but it works for me, considering the following:
The RIAA & general music industry will stagnate … what is the incentive for searching for more music talent, when they can sit on their arses and wait for the money to roll in from existing music from the last 70 years? Which is what they are doing now anyway
And then there will be the squabbles about who gets the money … and how much & they’ll spend it all in legal arguments with eachother, like cats in a sack
In the end, the big companies will rip eachother to shreds, until they are nothing but large legal departments & we’ll be left with all the independants, where the artists get a fair share of the money.
The start of a utopian society where everyone gets their fair share depending on their contribution to society, rather than whose daddy runs the company & can promote you up the ranks to an obscure management position with a big paycheck & ability to take advantage of everyone elses hard yakka.
Bring it on!
