[email protected] writes about legislation as strategy. The point is that legislation is not a great strategy - what a surprise. This is something people outside the corporate superstructure have realized for quite a while now.

The premise is also wrong: that the music industry has a 'pricing problem'. It's not a pricing problem, it's a strategic problem - a problem created by the impacts of technology on the competitive dynamics of an oligopoly, and a problem fundamentally about an entire industry not developing the right core competences necessary for future success.

To call it a pricing problem misses the entire point of what's going on in the music industry today. I love it when b-schools try and co-opt what people actually in the market are saying, and then get it dead wrong.
