iTunes for Indies

Excellent summary of yesterday's Apple meeting with indie record companies by Derek Sivers, head of CD Baby. If you're following the Apple Music initiative, it's worth reading.

UPDATE 1034am... looks like Sivers pulled the page. Maybe Apple didn't like his giving all the details away.

UPDATE 2:24pm: Here's a copy of the pulled CDBaby report, courtesy of Gnutella News: http://www.gnutellanews.com/article/6830 Posted by brian at June 6, 2003 09:56 AM


If it comes off CDBaby's digital distribution service for their artists is incredible, what's more they've now decided to waive the 40 dollar fee, so now the service to get on itunes is free.

My favorite feature of itunes is the individual song purchase feature. So many albums today have one or two good tracks the rest just filler. Purchasing individual songs is a great way to weed out the mediocrity, thanks to itunes you no longer have to shell out 18 dollars for a 15 songs album just to hear the one or two good tracks.

No wonder the iTunes Music Store has been named "Invention of the Year" by Time Magazine
