Recording Business Case Study – 1 song, 7.5 writers, 18+ versions

A funny/sad/ridiculous tale of how record companies often don’t know their asses from their elbows. Told with grace and humor.

Let’s be clear, this is the recording industry* we are trying to protect with our constant attempts to pass internet-killing legislation.

*I say “recording industry” because I think that is a different animal than the “music industry”. Unfortunately, too many people, including the uploader of this video, use the terms interchangeably.

(Thanks to my friend and ex-housemate Eric, who is a high-powered entertainment lawyer in LA, for sharing this)
