Is Music going to be a service instead of a product?

    I was reading a book on the future of music and it mentions that in the future, music is going to be a service that you would sign up for like you get cable tv or internet. Also, there won't be any copyrights. I was kind of demoralized by it. Do you think it's likely to happen?

    There's always going to be copyright and intellectual rights. You can't take that away from the composers.

    I think music probably will be a streamed service (as indeed it already is) provided over cable or internet, but that doesn't necessarily alter the copyright situation. The copyright owner could still be recompensed each time his/her music is downloaded, just as it is now when you download from itunes etc. or when music is played as a tv programme introduction. Each time it's played, the owner gets a payment.
