Bravo to @mpjamesmoore for serious $78 million support for CDN music. This is far more effective than an iPod "tax".http://bit.ly/9Rs7D1
Serious music is quite another matter, and requires further special attention. This is especially the case since the current management of CBC has effectively thrown serious music under a bus and destroyed 70 years worth of essential infrastructural support for it. It's still not too late to restore much of what was lost and even to save a lot of money in the process - not least of which would involve significantly lower tariff payments to SOCAN and Re:Sound (NRCC). But some serious decisions need to be taken by the CBC president if this is to happen, and if not by him, then by the Board of Directors and potentially, if necessary, by the Government.
