Other Industries Confront the Web

I don't generally blog about the problems that the music and film/TV industries face in digitizing their content and making it available online, because 1) I just don't care about the music industry at all and 2) I don't have a particularly good grasp of the film/TV business model. But I've come upon a few interesting articles lately on the topic, so I'm posting them here as a link round-up.

The New York Times has a nice article on Radiohead's name-your-price album and related changes in the music industry.

Nikki Finke's Deadline Hollywood Daily has become my go-to source for news about the WGA strike.

And, one with direct library relevance: You can now do keyword searches of [some] online videos.
