Warner Music Group: We were wrong to go to war with consumers

I have a hard time buying that a big multimedia conglomerate and RIAA member in good standing would inadvertently wage war on consumers.

This statement that all but resembles an apology is just the latest tactic by the greedy to lull the consumer into a false sense security.

MacUser: News: UPDATED: Music boss: we were wrong to go to war with consumers: "We used to fool ourselves," he said. "We used to think our content was perfect just exactly as it was. We expected our business would remain blissfully unaffected even as the world of interactivity, constant connection and file sharing was exploding. And of course we were wrong. How were we wrong? By standing still or moving at a glacial pace, we inadvertently went to war with consumers by denying them what they wanted and could otherwise find and as a result of course, consumers won."
