LATEST FROM SXSW: Music Industry belatedly acknowledges the internet probably isn't going to go away, but doesn't yet seem to have realised the existence of online music review sites, music email communities, music blogs, community boards...:

"All that content is out there but nobody's telling people what to listen to, what's next, what to buy, what to download," he [Don VanCleave, president of the Coalition of Independent Music Stores] said. "You can have millions of choices, but without some kind of a filter it's very tough to get turned onto anything new."

Perhaps the RIAA and its friends has got such strong filters to ensure there's no bad file sharing happening within the music industry, it takes, like, five years for pages to download.
