I wanted to share this talk from Nettwerk CEO Terry McBride with you, as it has some pretty interesting branding and marketing takeaways that apply not just to the music industry. Pay close attention to Terry’s thought on how you can’t litigate or legislate customer behavior, but should instead understand it because that’s where the monetization opportunities lie. His example of how Spotify is decreasing peer-to-peer file sharing rates in Europe perfectly illustrates this point.
