Corante picks up David Lowery’s “New Boss, Old Boss” and writer Alan Wexelblat largely agrees with him, “he [Lowery] also hits on a couple of points I’ve made in other Copyfight posts: artists need to get paid, and that includes the large and often invisible team behind the guy in the spotlight. Digital downloads are not returning large amounts to artists. Gatekeeper companies, particularly Apple, are taking a big chunk of the dollars spent through them – in some cases a bigger chunk than a standard label would have taken. Tech companies are astonishingly hypocritical in the cavalier way they treat copyrights and the covetous way they treat their own patents. “
