The music recording and publishing industry long had organisations in place to enforce/fight copyright violations, and also pool and distribute income from public performances. From there it was simple to move on to fight Napster.

But I'm sure this will be a catalyst.

As for your main thesis that all the mags should take a deep breath and consider what they can learn from this model - I could not agree more.


Free web-magazines could well be the future. Take a look at Digi-zines -
