Producer Jimmy Iovine On Free Music and Advertising

On the best model to compete with free music:
“Let’s say we had a subscription service, for lack of a better word, but only this service was in an environment that you could go in and know everything about that artist, artists that are related to that artist, credible playlists by unique people, all the videos in one place, all this original content … I think that’s one of the things that can turn the tide.” —Artist House Music

On advertising:
“The record industry has for a very, very long time has missed the opportunity on advertising. We’re the only people in the world that give away the content, someone else advertises around it and we call it promotion. That is just naive.” —All Things D
