Prof. Logie on MPR's Midmorning

Radiohead ushers in a new era of music distribution
Broadcast: Midmorning, 10/12/2007, 9:06 a.m.

The recording industry may have won a victory when a Duluth woman was found guilty of illegally downloading music, but critics say the record companies are clueless when it comes to the future of music distribution. Radiohead's new album may be a sign of things to come.

Guests
John Logie: Associate professor in the department of writing studies at the University of Minnesota, and author of "Peers, Pirates, and Persuasion: Rhetoric in the Peer-to-Peer Debates."

Jim DeRogatis: Pop music critic at the Chicago Sun Times and co-host of Sound Opinions.

Cara Duckworth: Director of communications at the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
