Having written early and often about the need for old media companies to build new business models rather than try to punish people for making use of new technology, I feel it is only fair to applaud Sony for doing the right (and hopefully profitable) thing.
There's a great video up on YouTube, that endless source of information and delight, called JK's Wedding Entrance Dance.If you go there you'll discover that it has as its background a Sony recording, Forever. But instead of demanding that the video be taken down for copyright violation, Sony instead embraced the marketing opportunity and put up click-throughs enabling the song to be bought on iTunes or Amazon. Jill and Kevin are not making money but they sure got lots of publicity -- and a great story.
Now if this could only be an example to other recording companies as well as print sources as to why extending creativity (and being creative yourselves) is likely to be a lot more interesting and durable than insisting that the old ways must go on forever. I remember when wedding pictures only existed in albums.
