Book Publishers Look To Music For Digital Content Lessons

Posted by on June 2, 2009

Reuters has a nice piece from the Book Expo America, where a panel discussed learning lessons from the music business’ transition (or lack thereof) to the digital age as e-books (and its piracy) become more ubiquitous. Seems these bookworms like to talk a big game…

“Our aim is not to beat up the music industry … but that said, they sure did screw it up,” Andrew Albanese, Publisher’s Weekly features editor, told a panel discussion on the topic.

OH SNAP. It’s on. Dude thinks he can do it better? WHATCHU GOT!? In all fairness, it is probably best in this case that “learning lessons” means “don’t do what they did.”
