There are music people out there who can’t or don’t want to deal with all the requirements to establish this type of modern networking capability. There is also another group of writers out there who have been stalling because they have to pay to get all this started in the real world. We are opening up or online server capacity, software configurations and our secure online financial processing to the music community."
