Post by: Chief on September 02, 2007, 06:49:14 AM

the obvious one would be illegal downloading and how sales have dropped, get some figures one year, total sales for a few years onwards and blame illegal downloading?

^yep yep, i'll definetly be talking about the external forces the music industry faces, including illegal downloads.

i also need some ideas on:

-legal issues in music, ie: artists being sued over publishing rights etc.
-public opinions: trends in music etc, the thug image, the emo image etc.
-internal issues: artists in bad positions within a company, may cause them to release a lesser quality product, dj quik? i need more non hip hop related shit thats happening within the industry though! like some old school shit, bands being taken hostage by record companies n shit!

anyway, ima get readin some more.

any feedback is appreciated, no matter how obvious it may seem!

if uni is run in a similar way to what it is here in england, then I would not worry about it. The first year over here essentially means nothing, will not impact on what you finally come out with and as long as you achieve the bare minimum pass overall in the first year, then everything is fine. It is only the second and third year which you have to be mindful of. However if your curriculum is run differently then these words of mine are going to be completely invalidated lol.
