Warner: Music Games Must Pay More

Warner Music Chief Executive Edgar Bronfman says he thinks music games will need to pay greater licensing fees in the future to include songs in music-based games such as Rock Band and Guitar Hero. This seems to defy the logic that such games have actually benefited music sales by creating a new revenue stream for songs and sparking renewed interest in older artists and their materials, but he does not see it that way, as he says, "The amount being paid to the music industry, even though their games are entirely dependent on the content we own and control, is far too small." Must be heartening to be a musician and hear a label refer to your music as "content we own and control."

How many musicians do you think will actually hear this? The people they talk to are in the biz, and they wont tell their gold egg laying ducks the truth now, will they.
