Submission + - Using Twitter instead of the RIAA: Zoe Keating (blogspot.com) 3

NewYorkCountryLawyer writes: A great case study about a new business model for the music industry: How cellist Zoe Keating (@zoecello on Twitter), seen and heard here jamming while pregnant with other musicians on the street in Austin Texas, used Twitter — instead of a Big 4 record label — to develop her fan base. It's a remarkable illustration of the fact that the RIAA are dinosaurs, on the road to irrelevancy. The historic need of an 'unsigned' artist to win a 'contract' with a 'label', as a precondition to success, is no more.
