CD Baby and the iTunes Music Store

Derek Sivers on working with Apple, Steve Jobs changing his tune, and making promises about things beyond your full control (via Jason Snell).

[Jobs:] This number could have easily been much higher, if we wanted to let in every song. But we realize record companies do a great service. They edit! Did you know that if you and I record a song, for $40 we can pay a few of the services to get it on their site, through some intermediaries? We can be on Rhapsody and all these other guys for $40? Well we don’t want to let that stuff on our site! So we’ve had to edit it. And these are 400,000 quality songs.
