Ian Rogers On The Death Of The Music CD Business: “I Don’t Care.”
We've written a lot about the death of the recorded music business , but in a keynote address to a music industry conference a couple weeks ago Topspin CEO Ian Rogers sketches out a different future. Rogers, the former head of Yahoo Music , correctly points out, as others have before him, that it is not the music industry that is dying. It is the CD business. And as far as the CD business going the way of the dodo, with sales of physical CDs declining and the growth of digital sales not making up the difference, his response is: I don’t care.
