The Lease They Can Do: What the Fight Over 'Used' Music Reveals About Online Media
April 03, 2013 | Businessweek | By Paul Ford.

What is a song worth to Spotify or competitors such as Rdio? To them, a song is an entry in a very large database—and they solve the licensing problem by managing the licenses in bulk, then allowing listeners access to their libraries of music. At some level, Spotify is not a music service but a license clearinghouse that specializes in music....So far, the large music labels have been able to negotiate with streaming services, but as the streaming music players get bigger their power will increase; Spotify is apparently looking for price breaks from the major labels.

The big question now is not “whose album gets made?” but more “who gets to listen?” Not just who, but when—and who gets paid for the privilege? Oh, for the days when record stores featured bootlegs and cats. The clerks might have been snotty, but at least you didn’t have to have endless discussions about databases and doctrine. No one, anywhere, had to know how often you listened to Supertramp.

That’s another part of the puzzle. Streaming services generate a tremendous amount of data that has value of its own; sooner or later it will be used to make decisions about what gets produced....So this is not about technology. Nor is it really about music. This is about determining the optimal strategy for mass licensing of digital artifacts. Songs are the commodity but the licenses are currency....So this is the task: Figure out how to make money, reward artists enough that they continue to make new things, and pacify the labels and studios, while also creating something that doesn’t rip off, confuse, or upset the audience. If someone can do that, then why stick to movies, music, or perhaps books? New forms of media could be sold as well. Tumblr blogs, animated GIFs, casual games, and the like could all flow into such systems. Right now, when media objects are sold, it’s often as art (like the six-second Vine video called “Tits on Tits on Ikea” that artist Andrea Washko recently sold for $200). A massive marketplace in ridiculous pictures could emerge. Flickr (YHOO)could turn into a mall. Pinterest could become … Pintere$t.

August 6, 2007 | Wall Street Journal | By Simona Covel.
There are 99 companies looking for funding for every investor. The best
postings are short ads that are really to the point. Four sentences that
are well-composed will beat four paragraphs every time. It should say:
"This is the industry we're serving. This is the problem we're solving.
And this is how we make money doing it."

A bad posting doesn't give any indication to the investor why they would
want to invest in that company.

Some Newspapers Shift Coverage After Tracking Readers Online -
September 5, 2010 | Wall Street Journal | By JEREMY W.
PETERS. In most businesses, not knowing how well a particular product
is performing would be almost unthinkable. Now, because of technology
newspapers can pinpoint what people online are viewing and commenting
on, how much time they spend with an article and even how much money an
article makes in advertising revenue, newspapers can make more
scientific decisions about allocating their ever scarcer resources.
...reader metrics as a tool to help him better determine how to use
online resources.

“We ask, ‘What can we do online to make it more attractive?” ’ Mr.
Narisetti said. “Can we do podcasts? Can we do a photo gallery? Can we
do any kind of user-generated content?”

A Strong Net Game -
OCTOBER 25, 2004 | Wall Street Journal | by ANDREW BLACKMAN.
As a traditional, high-maintenance Manhattan store with high overhead,
J&R was viewed by Web theory circa 1997 as a dinosaur that would
soon be outsmarted by more nimble, low-cost start-ups. But it hasn't
turned out that way. Donna Hoffman, co-director of the Sloan Center for
Internet Retailing at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn.

Can a Click Replace a Glance?
March 24, 2009 | The American Prospect | Paul Waldman

Newspapers offered a serendipitous reading experience that online
formats haven't managed to replicate. "The real value of the open-stack
library, on the other hand, is not the book you were looking for, but
the book you happened across on your way to what you were looking for.
It's what you see and realize you're interested in, or what you might
never have thought you'd be interested in."
