Chris Anderson: "Labels the Least Important Part"
We wrongly correlated, or equated, the music industry with the record labels. It now turns out in fact that the labels are now the least important part.

So there's really nothing wrong with the music industry; we're just redefining what it is.- Free" author Chris Anderson in an interview with Times UK.
