There was a good article in a recent issue of THE NATION about the
"Culture Blockade" (James Ledbetter) in America. The idea was that the
Recording Industry wants to maximize profits by creating an "export
only" situation of music and culture-- thus more people around the
world buy American music; so everyone is buying American music and
Americans are cut off from the music of the rest of of the world. I
think it said America has fewer international music artists breaking
into its market than any country other than Pakistan! That underscores
the idea that established American artists who have and make plenty of
money are the least in need of protection, but they seem to receive the
most protection from the Recording Industry and the government leaders
they lobby...
