With the music business attacking downloaders one wonders if they intend to sell music to anyone older than 25. Over and over I hear friends ranging from 35 to 60 complaining there isn't any new interesting music available. Some are finding music in Europe and others have developed tastes which are served by minor players (Jazz, Classical, Folk, etc), but there is very little in the way of mass market music aimed at the slightly older masses.
Over the past few years my measurements have indicated that network piracy is rare over the age of 25 for a variety of reasons (dissecting them requires deeper work). It seems obvious to take an under-served market that doesn't "steal" music and serve them. My guess is the industry is leaving several billion on the table because they have completely lost focus.
These guys are every bit as clueless as the dot.bomb folks.
