Beyond head envisions $10b windfall

HOW BEYOND WORKS: Device manufacturers and ISPs would pay Beyond a license fee worth “the price of a few CDs,” but could recoup the sums by charging customers a premium for access, Kidron explained. Beyond would then pay out small sums every time a track was played, whether it was a new purchase or a file already held—legally or illegally—in users’ digital libraries. “There is no illegal music in the Beyond world because we pay royalties no matter what its source,” he said.
