Bandcamp, the music web site for independent musicians (untainted by News Corp), has started to press records, and they’re doing so in a unique way. By simply looking at the site traffic for artists who are seeing some success for their recordings on the site, they can propose to produce a physical record – sharing the profits with the artist, but explicitly NOT taking ownership of the artist’s recording. This seems like such a sane arrangement that you can’t for the moment imagine why the music industry operates any differently.
