Even if the music industry won't learn from their mistakes, someone is

Chris Ahearn, President, Media at Thomson Reuters, has been watching and learning:

Blaming the new leaders or aggregators for disrupting the business of the old leaders, or saber-rattling and threatening to sue are not business strategies – they are personal therapy sessions. Go ask a music executive how well it works.

Perhaps EMI should think about approaching him?
