    Derek, I’m interested in how you square the lost generation idea with the relative success of iTunes.

    Orin: I may not have explained this well. I don’t mean that this generation is unwilling to pay for content. In fact, I think they are increasingly so, particularly if they feel a connection to the artist(s). (While it may not be a replicable model, Radiohead’s “In Rainbows” method at least conveys the concept.) Rather, I was emphasizing that there is a visceral mistrust of Hollywood.

    It helps iTunes particularly that it isn’t a Hollywood product – it’s a Silicon Valley one. This significantly irritates the music industry.

    @Samir: couldn’t agree more. Also, how do you blog about cricket? It’s like blogging about quantum physics!

    Derek, glad you liked the post.

    Blogging about cricket is easy when you are obsessed about it as I am! Incidentally, here is an IP-related post on cricket:
