In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – Ron Sobel, President of North Star Media, talks about the digital age. Sobel brings up Napster and its effects upon the music industry. Sobel also discusses the difference between a download and stream. A download is a mechanical and a stream is a public performance. Also in this segment, Sobel covers the radio. Radio was originally perceived as a medium that ripped off songwriters and publishers. However, today it is the largest source of income that writers and publishers receive. He shares his opinion that digital distribution will take the same path as radio.
