The recording industry has always tried to control innovation of technology to meet their interests, and make maximum profits. This has worked in the
past, with traditional distribution, such as radio, record stores, and the like. The industry has always wanted you to buy what they are promoting.
They have done this by limiting the selection in stores, and using payola to indie promoters to get the radio to include their promotions in your
radio station play list.
