Great video from the World Copyright Summit of former Billboard editor Rob Levine talking about his new book, 'Free Ride: How Digital Parasites are Destroying the Culture Business, and How the Culture Business Can Fight Back' (coming out in October).

(Sorry, can't figure out how to embed the vid here, it's not on YouTube.)
US author and business journalist Robert Levine offers some food for thought in this keynote conversation. In his forthcoming book Free Ride – How the Digital Parasites Are Destroying the Culture Business, and How the Culture Business Can Fight Back (Random House) Levine provides an alternative view to the ‘internet-is-free’ discourse and delivers a call-to-action to content owners.
Lot of great stuff in it. Rob covers a lot of stuff that many have been saying in these forums for years.
The book is great too (I got to read an advance copy). The interviewer calls it 'compulsory reading', and I agree.
