Music Services Score an A-Plus At Colleges

More than 20 colleges and universities have adopted legal music download services in the past year, according to this PDF report by the Joint Committee of the Higher Education and Entertainment Communities — a group of music and movie companies and higher education officials. Although 20 schools is a tiny percentage of those nationwide, the education and entertainment committee is confident the trend will continue to spread. Those low rates are made possible, in part, by a deep discount from record labels on the amount they charge for digital music services..Music publishers, which are also entitled to receive a small portion of payments, have not granted similar discounts.
