Looking at the diagram, what a BS patent! It's called a network! Which already existed. All of these silos, and networked activities, were already taking place in one form or another when this patent was filed! We had data networks, we had networked delivery of video (free and paid on-demand), and we had mobile communications that tied into data and content networks, etc., etc, etc.
...and the Mac. (Let's not forget the enterprise market, their last stronghold that has Macs being more widely adopted, and which need to operate within legacy systems. No matter how awful those systems are!)

This model will destroy a lot of the industry, and severely hurt the artists.
Oxymoron - "Samsung...cutting edge software and services"
A gross miscarriage of justice. Meanwhile Amazon continues its near monopoly and predatory pricing while putting bookstores out of business one after the other.
I tend to agree with you, although I do see the independent labels point of view being the little guys, and would have a greater impact on them financially. I think a two tiered approach, compensating them during the free trial, could have worked. As to TS, she's right in that music shouldn't be free. But that's why free streaming should never have been agreed to by the industry, but Apple didn't create that, but has to compete against it. Free streaming of "all you can...
