Not directly related but as I'm currently reading "Accelerando" by
Charles Stross - highly recommended btw. - I like how he portraits
what the music industry looks like in 10 years:

    Welcome to the second decade of the twenty-first century; [...]
    The International Convention on Performing Rights is holding a
    third round of crisis talks in an attempt to stave off the final
    collapse of the WIPO music licensing regime. On the one hand,
    hard-liners representing the Copyright Control Association of
    America are pressing for restrictions on duplicating the altered
    emotional states associated with specific media performances: As a
    demonstration that they mean business, two "software engineers" in
    California have been kneecapped, tarred, feathered, and left for
    dead under placards accusing them of reverse-engineering movie
    plot lines using avatars of dead and out-of-copyright stars.
    On the opposite side of the fence, the Association of Free Artists
    are demanding the right of perform music in public without a
    recording contract, and are denouncing the CCAA as being a tool of
    Mafiya apparachiks who have bought it from the moribund music
    industry in an attempt to go legit. FBI Director Leonid Kuibyshev
    responds by denying that the Mafiya is a significant presence in

    industry, which has been accelerating ever since the nasty

I didn't type this quote from my dead-tree copy of the book, I

of the novel is available as "Creative Commons

A must-read for every self-respecting copyleftwing revolutionary.
