Continuing the evolution of the digital distribution models: Online music stores singing a new tune: No big labels allowed [pdf]

Launched in the shadow of large digital distribution empires such as Apple’s iTunes and Napster, these independents-only music stores are designed to serve musicians who find themselves buried beneath the major labels’ artists.

Even on the Internet, where inventory isn’t limited by real-world display space, unsigned artists don’t stand a chance unless they have a record deal.

But the tables are starting to turn, with the emergence of indie-only online music stores that not only give exposure to musicians on independent labels but to unsigned musicians. Businesses like Audiolunchbox.com and Magnatune.com are changing the way fans download music.
