RIAA Record Label Claimed Internet Didn’t Harm Music

In respond to Stevie Nicks’ claim that the Internet is destroying rock music, Elektra Records’ founder, one of the RIAA record labels, argues that music, on the contrary, has a very bright future where the Internet isn’t its enemy.


Jac Holzman, the founder of Elektra Records, which helped such artists as The Doors, has said a number of positive things about the digital world. He was the one who helped push the music industry to adopt the CD, and now he says that the music industry actually has a very bright future. Holzman also watched the rise of the MP3 and BitTorrent, and these new technologies didn’t spook him. Instead, he said that those technologies made many artists and labels rich. As for the Internet and digital distribution, he’s sure record labels are able to capitalize on them as well, though they just really don’t have any choice.

The advantages of the P2P, he thinks, are obvious: no manufacturing costs, but the possibility to ask for donations. Re-use of copyrighted content is also viewed through fair use. Besides, taking music fans to the court is a big mistake, and service providers could share a part of their profit from the music flowing via their networks.

Jac Holzman’s article follows the Stevie Nicks’ statement, blaming the web for destroying rock. John Mellencamp also has said that the Internet can be considered the most dangerous thing since the invention of A-bomb.

So what do all these different points of view mean? The obvious conclusion is that not everyone in the Recording Industry Association of America has the solid opinion of the Internet destroying music. Within the Association itself, there exist opposing views on the digital world and the way it affects the industry. On the other hand, people supporting loosening of the copyright legislation aren’t necessarily all saying that the laws in this field should be canceled and everything made free. On the contrary, many those supporting more liberal legislation are just happy to pay for copyrighted content. One could see that although people holding the extreme point of view on the Internet do exist, not all of them are of the same opinion.

What all this means is that the debate like this shows the signs of polarity within the digital industry. If someone believes that the web should be abolished, lots of people with different point of view would rally against their call.
