I'm going to go deeper for just a moment.

This entire debate reminds us that those who have the content have the power. Not those with the money, note: the content. When iTunes has major label content and tons more, they have power. When illegal filesharers have content, they have power. When you speculate, Vegas, about what the majors could do if they ever truly went into caucus, it's the threat of "regaining control" of their content that gives them power.

The lesson? KEEP CONTROL OF YOUR MUSIC. That's the founding principle of TuneCore--you control your rights, your masters, your choice of distribution channels, everything.
