The Music Industry is Still Not Happy with YouTube

The music industry is now saying that they are not being paid enough for the music that is available on YouTube. The article is here.
My personal opinion about this is that for years the music industry had the opportunity to create the music distribution system that they wanted. They chose not to and stick to trying to sell CDs. The market created a demand for online distribution and the RIAA basically sat on the sidelines. In the absence of leadership from the recording industry other online distribution methods emerged and the RIAA spent their time and money on lawyers instead of technology. So now the RIAA is playing wack a mole with the various ways people get music in 2016.
