|Piracy continues to grow: What will happen to the music and film
industries and culture in general?
soon there will be more necessary for artists to record their music on a enterprise. As for movies, piracy serves as a means of dissemination and propaganda, it only helps
I'm very against piracy. If we don't support these artists and pay to have the outcome of their work then we're killing them and the whole industry. Support the art if you want to see it live.
THAT is a mystery!
It will change and adapt
I think the industries should invent some special media formats with better copy protection - thats the only way. As for music, I think there should be on super-site (better than Last.fm or Spotify) with all possible music from all possible countries and times, a reasonable subscription fee (no more than 10 pounds a month) - and there will be much less reason to do piracy.
It's time to assume that nothing's going to be the same as before. Time to adapt.
We have to learn to adapt to the new technologies available to us - Apple created iTunes and now people can go online and buy one song at a time legally. Everyone wins. Kodak was never really able to keep up with the change in technologies and has become somewhat of a dinosaur. We have to adapt. Culture in general does want to support the arts - we just have to figure out how to make it work now that it is so much easier to produce and disseminate media.
|There is now a big difference in attitudes between adults over the age of 40 and anyone younger than that with regards to music especially.
Music companies made the wrong moves early on and now most users won't pay for content which is not great if you are a content creator. On the other hand some well known musicians made "super rents" from the old systems and so there is not much symnpathy for them or the record companies.
I think that music applications like Bjork "Biophilia" or Paul Kelly - "Making Gravy" is the way to go. I like tablet technology and anything that can reinvent music content for the iPad and other tablets will have a future.
Music in the last 10 years has become much more of a live artform and that is a great thing. I still like going to concerts but promotors need to consider that no everyone wants to wait till 11pm in a club drinking over priced drinks before hearing the main act.
We need more musical events at family friendly venues and timeslots. Live music at home always used to be a thing prior to TV and I think with more musical intruments and a user generated culture there is more content being made.
We can all be film makers and musicians. Garage band is fun. I think we are heading into more of a communal sharing kind of musical culture where two way sharing is the norm.
This is the age of the read write web. Broadcast television is for those too lazy to pick and programme their own content.
Apple TV and other internet ready devices are going to explode the commercial triangle of advertisers and broadcaster & passive consumers.
I consider most corporate organiseations to be telling porkies most of the time and I don't trust them with anything if I can help it. Large organisations have not earned trust and broadcaster and music companies have ripped off artists and consumers for years.
The future belongs to the makers and creators and that is all of us.
Like any living thing, they either adapt or die.
