"Since the first century, music has always had the same business," said Ron Stone, founder of artist management agency Gold Mountain Entertainment. "We play music, you like it, you pay us money.'' Later, he noted how file sharing has devalued music. "Music for a generation has become disposable and it used to be a collectible," Stone said.

RON STONE: We're kind of stuck in this plantation system with the record companies. And they're the only games in town. And we looked at the Internet as an opportunity to extricate ourselves from this situation and deal directly with our audience. And now it's not an option because the option now is we can have the relatively bad contractual arrangement with one of the majors, or we could have our property taken for free. These are very bad choices.THIS BIO IS A WORK IN PROGRESS
