“our general philosophy is, we want to lead through innovation as opposed to litigation. The user-generated content phenomenon is something we believe is only going to continue to grow and is probably unstoppable. We’d like to be a part of it and make it a great experience for consumers and make sure we and our artists are being rewarded.”
– Alex Zubillaga, Warner’s executive vice president for digital strategy
Rewarded for what? And how? Suing grandparents? Filing lawsuits using the deplorable “anonymous defendant” ploy where people can be sued, but are never named, until the day they were supposed to show up in court? What is that? Innovation?
For an asshole, sure.
Makes you wonder what sort of shakedown tactics were used against Youtube.
Buddy, when your business model is outdated, and your business is threatened with extinction like the dinosaurs you are, why not try and go out gracefully instead of the pathetic screeching old hag. “I’m melting, I’m melting indeed”
Like BP Solar, ATT ‘broadband,’ and the ‘mission accomplished’ in Iraq, ‘innovative record company’ is an oxymoron.
