Re: David Byrne: 'The internet will suck all creative content out of the world'
What musicians, and any other intellectual property owner needs, is a form of digital security, that somehow would be fail-safe. If some smart computer person could devise a way of making it so anyone downloading free music will be digitally thwarted, maybe even sabotaged...things might be different. How about shutting down sites that cater to pirates. Get it at the source. It just seems that there is something that could be done.
Great art is born out of great pain.
