Stiffelman bombshell on Eminem digital ruling

QUOTE OF THE DAY: Digital Music News just ran across a startling statement from legal eagle Gary Stiffelman, which appeared a week ago in the Detroit Free Press’ coverage of FBT Productions’ court victory over UMG in a case involving digital royalties for Eminem’s early songs.  "If downloads are the way of the future,” Stiffelman asserted, “this is going to have massive implications. It changes the playing field." Whoa. (9/10a)
