Lessig on iTunes

In this part of a PBS forum, Lessig notes that
Apple's experiment is a hopeful sign, but it will only be effective if independent labels are allowed compete directly with the major labels. When some are able to offer songs at 15 cents a copy to compete with songs offered at 99 cents a copy, then we will have the kind of competition that could explode the Internet as a medium for distribution.
It does not look like that will happen (but who knows).
