On a much lighter note...

I just ran across this article. The headline is great. What really makes it funny is that it's true (in fact, the industry is constitutionally unable to admit it, but piracy is just a sign of underserved customers). What makes it even funnier is that Apple could easily buy all of the movie studios. Out of cash reserves.

Puts a bit of perspective on the massively outsize influence of the studios.

To get back to the article, though, I think the CEO is completely wrong that iTunes is stifling competition. If it is (and I doubt it), it's a sign that the studios are relying too much on others to do their work.
