A Response to Bob Lefsetz on Indiana

In the April 4, 2015 edition of his Lefsetz Letter, Bob Lefsetz conflates two mostly unrelated arguments into one, muddling both. Using the outrage over Indiana and Arkansas’s Religious Freedom Restoration Acts (RFRA) as his example, Lefsetz argues:

  2. The music industry is faltering because it refuses to adapt to change or utilize their leverage the way that tech companies have, and musicians are blaming everybody but themselves. This is why they have lost the people.
