I notice that the immanent changes in how music generates cash is getting more and more coverage.
Janis Ian points out that the latest RIAA lawsuit threatens musicians more than ISPs; John Snyder writes a long piece in Salon reiterating (and linking to) many of the arguments from the last year, but with the aim of getting NARAS to counterbalance the RIAA.
Harvard Law have a great roundup of key papers and a good summary.
William Fisher's upcoming book again looks thorough, but judging by the introduction leans far too closely to the model of indirect payment via taxation of loosely-related goods and statistical sampling of 'watermarks', as Neil Netanel similarly proposes. This scheme will never be flexible enough to get much further down the Zipf distribution of media creation than the top fraction of a percent that the exisiting publishing model serves. Jonathan Peterson explains what 'amateur' really means.
(Oh, and Maf, I spelled 'immanent' right).
