Shame on you Frank, and shame on everybody else who takes money from Apple and screws fans. There’s enough money in music without taking every last buck, and the joke is on you, for thinking so short term, you want your music available to everybody, because in these days of information overload we need nobody, everybody is superfluous, you don’t want to enter the marketplace with one hand tied behind your back.
Lefsetz is right — exclusives are only good for the platform that lands them and the artist that cashes that platform's check. I can't fault Oceanfor taking Apple's money, but he did leave fans on other platform's out in the cold until Apple's window of exclusivity expires. Here's hoping this recent trend towards exclusives is short-live.
