The Fall Of Content's Kingdom
Spotted this over on Paid Content:
A white paper by Alexander Cameron of Digital TX in London, about piracy, the failure of the music and movie industry to address customer demand, and how the ages of net neutrality and the big boys controlling the content industry are about to come to their end.The Fall Of Content's Kingdom (pdf)
This below will tell you the tone of it: “A lot of the content industry’s problems come from insularity, and it’s a lot easier to see that when you’re on the outside, as many ISPs are. Theirs is an exclusive club, massively reinforced and defended from outside influence. These are high-profile businesses with incredible popular products that see them fielding off requests from everywhere, all day long. Their cynicism has become institutional. They simply have too much business and can’t get involved in it all. They have got into a habit of closing the door to new people, ideas and new business. The only way in is to know someone who can make an introduction. It’s particularly bad in the US and the UK, the latter run exclusively on “who you know” as its modus operandi.”
The sequel to the hugely popular "Great Content Adventure" that was quoted all over the world, this detailed paper looks at piracy, the failure of the music and movie industry to address customer demand, and how the ages of net neutrality and the big boys controlling the content industry are about to come to their end.
PS: Happy 4th Birthday, Rafat! Well done.
