MP3 Sales: Another nail for the long tail?

But in an update to their recent findings, the PRS-MCPS Alliance (the UK’s music royalty collection organisation) […]

My ex-business partner Maf and his wife Tara came over from LA this week and it was fantastic to spend an evening with them reminiscing about getting drunk in various cities around the world and talking about the various business pursuits we’ve both been involved with since closing the record label down.
