Newsweek on Music Preservation and Sales Online

Newsweek asks, "The recording industry likes to grouse that Internet piracy is hurting sales. So why is some of the best online music also the oldest?" I'm not sure they ever actually answer that question; but they do point to several great online efforts to preserve and distribute old music, some commercial and some not.

For all the fire the recording industry breathes about the dangers the Internet poses to their survival, it's ironic that some of the oldest recordings are once again seeing the light of day thanks to new technology.
