Default Music Industry Says ISP Can Profit From Online Music Sales

According to a new study commissioned by the BPI, the group that represents the UK music industry, ISPs are set to make millions if they offer music sales services directly to their subscribers.

The study also suggest that the music industry should help out ISPs and encourage them expand ISP based music services, which the report predict will be worth ú103 million ($USD 154 million) by 2013.

This all sounds good, but the music industry then stresses that ISPs must fight illegal music downloads in order to take advantage of this new business opportunity. Which probably brings us to the main function of the report, not as a way to examine future business opportunities, but a way to bribe ISPs into becoming copyright cops for the music industry.

UK ISPs are less convinced and at least one ISP, TalkTalk, has seen through the BPI's attempt.

ôTalkTalk thanks the BPI for its strategic business advice. Though some may question the value of such insight from an industry which has failed to acknowledge the impact of new technology on its own business models and is pressing the Government to criminalise its biggest customers,ö a spokesperson told news website TorrentFreak.
