    I think the music labels feel this way more about creative commons artists in website collectives than about indie labels. The analogy is more applicable.

      I am sure that the record labels feel the same way about independent artists
      -
      they have not selected them so they cannot have quality. We have seen a
      major
      decline of the music monopoly, so the question is whether or not this old
      thinking will similarly affect big publishing. I think that this is yet to
      be
      known, but am glad to have the opportunity to hear and read authors who do
      not
      necessarily have the approval of the publishers.

      Cheers -
