Killing The Goose

As news-talk consultant Holland Cooke keeps predicting a tsunami of talk FM stations should Congress ever grant the record industry's wish to get a royalty for radio airplay of their music, it's easy to shrug and say that it's surely never going to really happen because at the end of the day the RIAA will realize that they'll lose a lot more than they gain should they win this fight.

If that's how you feel, please take an hour and listen to NPR's On The Media this week.

History demonstrates that labels have a long track record of shooting themselves in the foot by putting the people who are in position to grow their business .. out of business.
