Music was a big focus of day one of the Mesh Conference with a keynote from Ethan Kaplan and a panel that included CRIA's Graham Henderson, David Usher, and Arts & Crafts Kieran Roy. Interestingly, the word "copyright" was never mentioned. The Kaplan keynote (liveblog here) focused on the value of "experiencing" music over possessing the "artifact" and pointed to ways that artists can connect with their fan base. Henderson acknowledged that the industry "backed the wrong horse" and that the DRM strategy that restricted the way consumers could enjoy their music wasn't a clever strategy. Left unsaid, however, is that if the commercial strategy was a failure then why is the industry insistent on pursuing a legal reform strategy that is based on what it admits was a mistake?
