Sony's Opening Door a Bit for Music in Podcasts

I don't think this is the answer that podcasters were looking for, but it's a start, even though it's a specific isolated incident. Perhaps more music companies will make it easier for podcasters, both pro and hobbyists, to use major music in their music podcasts.

Adam Block, SVP/GM of Sony BMG's Legacy Recordings, describes the podcasts as "essentially a movie trailer for our projects." Digital media strategist Ted Cohen, formerly of EMI, told the WSJ that "protecting" major label artists' songs from appearing in podcasts has backfired as a strategy. "We've protected them so well nobody knows they exist," he joked.
