Christopher Knab, FourFront Media and Music
As I recall, FourFront is not one of those major media corporations, and I haven't heard of them. I wonder what choices they offer the public?

So I Googled them, and it's no choices. Christopher Knab is a consultant trying to sell his services/books to people trying to deal with 'the business', by fostering a hostility towards the powers that be.

I'm not saying the labels are perfect, or that some hostility might not be well-deserved, but I'm also cautious about opinions from anyone with an agenda.
