Content and Control

Victorial Shannon, web and technology writer for International Herald Tribune, has an interesting story on content and control on the web.

 

Comments:

The story makes the following claim.
"Like most of the world's pop culture and brands, the rest of the Internet's most sought-after brands of information and entertainment are dominated by U.S. companies."
But it's not as simple as that. Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Whitney Houston record on the Sony label. So do we regard them as Japanese brands rather than American ones?

Yes, I was wondering about that claim.

... besides the fact that I think the article focuses primarily on English language content...and a good many active speakers of English live in the U.S. ;-)
