U2 manager speaks on Apple, music

We’ve come across this video of U2 manager Paul McGuinness offering his thoughts on digital music at Midem earlier this year.
He called it, “The Online Bonanza: Who is making the money and why aren’t they sharing it?” In this he had some tough things to say against, well, almost everybody – and predicted Apple’s move to offer subscription services through iTunes, which is theoretically coming along next month. Worth a watch/listen if you haven’t seen this before. (He also predicted a three strikes and you’re out scheme with ISPs, the evolution of a strong iTunes alternative and more – not at all bad for nine minutes chat).
