A few quick questions come to mind:
- If artists release only in electronic form, will libraries be forced to subscribe to electronic packages such as those available for journals? I can see this being very complicated for specialist libraries.
- Will they have to contact individual performers in an attempt to obtain good quality recordings or resort to burning lower quality content in order to have a copy at all - and what are the copyright implications of that?
- How can music be adequately collected and archived if published on individual websites - will we have to rely on what's on iTunes?
