Young, Old and YouTube: In music, the generational divide comes down to radio versus YouTube.Published 8/15/12 in The New York Times
According to a new study by Nielsen,
teenagers prefer listening to music on YouTube over any other format:
64 percent of consumers aged 13 to 17 listen through the video site,
which is owned by Google, while 56 percent listen to the radio and 50
percent to CDs. For those 18 and over, the priorities are reversed: 67
percent listen on the radio, 61 percent to CDs and 41 percent to
Radio remains by far the
most popular way for listeners over all to find out about new music: 48
percent “discover music most often” on the radio, compared to only 7
percent through YouTube, according to the study, which was based on a
survey of 3,000 people online.
“While younger listeners opt for
technologically advanced methods, traditional methods of discovery like
radio and word-of-mouth continue to be strong drivers,” David Bakula, a
senior analyst at Nielsen, said in a statement.

It’s not so much of a question but I’d like your opinion on the following
We were discussing file sharing in the lunch room.
One individual expressed the opinion that file sharing is fine if the files being shared are those of musicians who are dead. He was of the opinion that sharing files of Elvis Presley music, Amy Winehouse, and the like is fine, since these individuals are gone and it’s only a corporate entity making profits on further sales of their work.
He also insisted that file sharing of “stuff” (music and movies) that were out of print and not available any other way was “fair” (He was referring to the soundtrack of an old movie (1940s) that had never been available as a soundtrack, and the DVD of which is now out of print).
I know* someone who is having a heck of a time proving to Youtube that she actually owns one of her songs. Have you ever had issues with Youtube?
*by “know” I mean I met her once at a concert (although she’s good friends with a few of my friends)

The point she's missing, or willfully ignoring, is that people have joyfully bypassed that transaction and prefer it the way it is- free stuff. I mean, my website is well known and easy to find if you Google LAM, and has a donation link, too. But the tens of thousands of people who have shared my music have never once offered to donate after they stole my music. Again, her question is coming from someone who isn't very bright, it's a disty artist trying to sound smart when they really aren't saying anything at all.Sean
