That would be the record companies, who through their unendingly greedy and short-sighted policies, litigated when they should have innovated, and thus presided over the disintegration of their own business model.
The great irony, of course, is that just when a handful of companies managed to dominate the world, they also managed, through hubris and greed, to destroy the industry that they had managed to dominate. We are about to see some serious “creative destruction” in the recording world.
They have no one to blame but themselves. The real winner here will be Apple.
