A couple of new links in the sidebar’s reading section:
- PaidContent.org: “the economics of content”. Fine reading and tons of news.
- MocoNews.net: everything you want to know about mobile content. Not surprisingly, a lot of posts about mobile DRM and Japan. Part of the PaidContent family.
- Billboard PostPlay: recently launched. Billboard PostPlay is “a news blog covering the business of digital music, both online and mobile music.” Also a PaidContent spin-off.
I also bumped into this November 2004 article on Japan’s mobile music biz: “Mobile music in Japan – Japan’s reality is our future” written by Jan Michael Hess. An interesting read and an excellent introduction to mobile music in Japan.
