Add digital sales decline

GLASS HALF FULL: In All Things D, Peter Kafka quotes a key line in the Billboard story: “While consumers will still buy hit songs for $1.29, it seems that catalog tracks priced at that level are not selling as well as they were at 99 cents.” He then riffs on it: “But you could also make the case that digital tracks were going to decline anyway and that the industry is better off squeezing every penny it can. And if you want to try to find a silver lining here, you could argue that since song sales are slipping, there’s no reason for the industry not to support rental/subscription models like Spotify, Rhapsody and MOG by cutting their licensing fees. But I wouldn’t bet on that happening soon.” (4/12a)
