coyote Posted May 30, 2001 Share Posted May 30, 2001 "Airplay does sell records." - the Lefsetz Letter, as quoted by Anderton in another thread 1. If this true it implies that free distribution of the product increases sales of the product. Will the recording industry reconsider its assault on Napster in light of this? 2. If as a station owner I am facilitating a sale, am I not entitled to a cut? In this light is payola so friggin' evil as everyone makes it out to be? And do politicians, who routinely accept payola (otherwise called "campaign contributions") have ANY moral foundation to tell radio stations it's wrong? I used to think I was Libertarian. Until I saw their platform; now I know I'm no more Libertarian than I am RepubliCrat or neoCON or Liberal or Socialist. This ain't no track meet; this is football.
