Setting the IFPI Record Straight

Michael Geist, Aug 05, 2006
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Michael Geist does his usual hard-nosed analysis of a music industry public statement, leaving sliced and diced and bleeding on the floor. So he should; "In explaining the situation in Canada, the IFPI resorts to a series of mischaracterizations and omissions." My problem is that the politicians read the IFPI reports, and not the rebuttals. When's the last time a politician ever read these pages, for example? One of the big problems to be faced with the lobby is their almost exclusive access to decision-makers, and their tendency to flood that access with reports like the much-maligned IFPI document.
