De como intercambiar archivos es bueno para la industria



  • El gobierno de Canadá ha encargado un estudio sobre el tema (es curioso como el resultado resulta tan distinto cuando no lo financian las discográficas).

    _File-sharing is good for Big Music

    Earlier today, Industry Canada, a ministry of the federal government, released a surprising study of peer-to-peer file-sharing on the music industry.

    The study is called The Impact of Music Downloads and P2P File-Sharing on the Purchase of Music: A Study for Industry Canada, and was written by Birgitte Andersen and Marion Frenz, of the Department of Management at the University of London in England.

    Its conclusion: P2P file-sharing does not put downward pressure on purchasing music, as the music industry has insisted for years. In fact, it does just the opposite: It tends to increase music purchasing.

    What?

    This is, after all, a study released with the blessings of the federal government, not some self-serving poll commissioned by the music industry.

    And this is from the same federal government that has indicated it wants to upset the balance that is so necessary to good copyright law to fall in line with what music and Tellywood industry lobbyists want.

    The study said that in Canada, for every 12 P2P downloaded songs, music purchases increased by 0.44 CDs.

    That means, the study’s authors say, “downloading the equivalent of approximately one CD increases purchasing by about half of a CD.”

    Moreover, the authors said they were “unable to find evidence of any relationship between P2P file sharing and purchases of electronically delivered music tracks [such as iTunes].”

    The study concluded that about half of all P2P tracks were downloaded because individuals wanted to hear songs before buying them or because they wanted to avoid purchasing the whole bundle of songs on the associated CDs. Another quarter were downloaded because they were just not available in music stores.

    The study said that the effect of a 1 per cent increase of downloading songs that were not available in stores was associated with nearly a 4 per cent increase in CD purchases, which suggests that people are really interested in buying CDs that the recording industry is not interested in promoting.

    Needless to say, industry lobbyists will dismiss the study immediately; they have invested far too much time, money and effort mounting an intense campaign against the effect of the Internet on their businesses.

    But this would not be the way to fight Industry Canada's study. To answer Industry Canada, the Canadian Recording Industry Association would have to do two things: It would have to come clean about the formula it uses to calculate the damage allegedly being done to its business by file-sharing, and it would have to come up with a manifestly independent study of its own, and release the entire thing to the public.

    And I don’t mean its study to be some quickie job done by the research arm of CRIA's public-relations company, which has produced several “studies” that have supported everything the industry claims.

    There is another interesting issue here. Since the study was created with heavy input from Industry Canada (though there is a disclaimer in it that says the study’s conclusions are not necessarily shared by the federal government), the government will be put in an interesting position should it cave into industry demands and craft a new copyright law that throws the entire copyright system out of balance, in favour of big business.

    Or perhaps the government can use the study as a reason to balance proposed legislation.

    This will be interesting._

    Muy clarificador éste párrafo. La industria discográfica y los grandes sellos, ésos que se dedican a la música para ganar pasta, se frotan las manos pensando en como podrían instaurar un mercado musical basado en la venta en sus distintas tiendas online de la música en archivos MP3, eliminando así todos los costes de producción y distribución. La idea és esa, aunque afortunadamente aún no saben muy bien como ponerla en práctica. Por ahora sólo se han atrevido con pequeñas maniobras como negarse a distribuir a tiendas pequeñas sus productos y poco más. Pero hay que reconocer que la primera batalla ya la ganaron, creando entre las nuevas generaciones, y no tan nuevas, un hábito de consumo basado en el producto que quieren vender, los archivos mp3, y que el consumidor no sea consciente de que, como en la alimentación, se le está vendiendo un producto de mucha menos calidad y a un precio similar. Menos mal que aún quedan numerosos pequeños sellos dedicados a la producción y distribución de música por amor al arte, y así resulta que no sólo es un placer comprarles a éstos últimos sino casi una obligación moral de todo melómano.

    Por lo demás fenómenos como el de las filtraciones en estado embrionario de numerosos discos, que hasta suelen circular por la red en cuatro o cinco versiones distintas, resultan funcionales a los propósitos de la industria más mezquina. Por una parte crean un estado de inseguridad en las descargas libres que puede utilizar dicha para dar una ventaja de certeza en la música comprada a ellos, asegurando tanto que su producto es la versión definitiva del trabajo del artista como que dicho producto reúne las condiciones óptimas de calidad- basándose siempre en el estándar del empobrecido formato mp3. Por otra parte, y no menos importante, dicho fenómeno de las filtraciones, refuerza los hábitos de consumos explotados hasta la saciedad por la economía capitalista, dónde la psique del consumidor se halla impregnada de la necesidad de devorar el objeto de consumo lo antes y lo más rápido mejor. Cuanto más y cuanto antes mejor. Siempre más. Ante ésta situación quizás sea necesario poner en práctica esa habilidad humana, cada vez más infrecuente, de parar. De ir un poco más despació y de hacer que la reflexión nos ayude a disfrutar más y mejor de todo lo que nos hace felices. En éste caso, la música.



  • gran reflexión, estoy totalmente de acuerdo



  • Es verdad, pero eso ya lo sabíamos, tú y yo, que somos tan listos.

    Emir Kusturica a 30 euros la entrada en La Riviera. Otro tema es el de los conciertos. Si el texto ese tan grande en inglés habla también de los conciertos, por favor, eliminar de vuestra mente esta frase y la anterior.



  • bueno no sé si este es el mejor lugar o no, pero tiene que ver con
    http://blue.jamendo.com/es/
    una plataforma para descargar y compartir archivos legalmente entre usuarios donde "si quieres" haces una donación directa al músico, o en su defecto, recomendarlos a tus colegas, escribir unas lineas sobre el cd, colgarlos en tu blog... no sé, es nuevo para mí y por tanto encara no hi he merdejat... alguien de por aquí lo usa? los grupillos que aparecen en las listas de reproducción en su gran mayoria ni flowers...



  • ¡Qué lástima que a mí me enseñaran francés en el instituto! Y ahorraros las bromitas fáciles con el francés que es de ser muy poco originales.



  • todos hemos pirateado cintas de casette cuando eramos más jóvenes,
    ¿quién no ha pedido un disco a un colega suyo para grabárselo en cinta y así escucharlo en su walkman?
    y no por ello se habían visto reducidas las ventas.
    Ya sé que el comentario es un poco gratuito y no del todo cierto pero a lo que voy es que la diferencia hoy dia es que todo es en masa y a lo grande y fácilmente accesible, pero yo pienso igual, eso beneficia a muchos artistas porque los que compramos no lo hacemos a ciegas, o escuchando 10 seg de canción en la tienda de discos (y eso si te lo dejan escuchar)

    Ojala los capullos de las discográficas y grandes distribuidoras abrieran los ojos y redujeran los precios (como ha pasado en muchos sectores como el de los billetes de avión, pantallas de plasma… etc etc etc) pues es la única puta solución a su mierda de "crisis".
