My friend John Paczkowski, over at the excellent blog “Good Morning Silicon Valley” has issued a call for entries:
The Great Recording Industry Business Model Contest: The recording industry needs your help. It can’t seem to figure out a business model that takes advantage of the way the Internet has changed the economics of music distribution. Perhaps you can. Beginning today, I’ll be accepting submissions for “The Great Recording Industry Business Model Contest.” I’ll post the best in GMSV as I receive them and I’ll reward the author of the winning entry with the appropriate plaudits and a SiliconValley.com t-shirt in CEO-prison-scrub orange. Have at it.
Send your submisisons here, with “Recording Industry Business Model” in the subject line.
My own models will appear in this space shortly.
You want this done for free. Fat chance. Even if you had the answer, they would rather pay McKenzie $4MM to learn nothing.
