RE: digital Beatles -- the mother of all licensing

Hi All

Oh, I have no doubt that SOME people are buying music from 
iTunes, and will continue to buy.  And of course, they will make 
money from it. While total sales (around 10 billion) seem 
impressive, figures for sales of individual items aren't 
obtainable, so proper comparison on a tune-by-tune, or 
artist-by-artist basis can't be done.  Youtube's views are 
massive, (And I'm not only talking about the mega stars like 
Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga with their more than 300 million 
views EACH); for all videos, for every one of those millions of 
'views' on Youtube, you can bet there are many copies made.

As for its networking impact and impact on education, that's a 
different discussion -
