From Tom Fine: "Here is an example of one artist who gets it, understands
where things are going:.."

True however I've got a big problem with tying income for artists and
songwriters to advertising. The advertiser ends up dictating the content of
the music. You need look no farther than commercial broadcasting in the
United States to see the resulting "vast wasteland" that has been created by
putting demographic profiles ahead of basic entertainment value. Even worse,
a sponsor's political viewpoints will often begin to dictate who gets
exposure and who doesn't. 

There's an old saying, "freedom of the press only belongs to those who are
wealthy enough to own a press." Expression that is financially beholden to
sponsors is not free.
