During the last decade the incumbent companies in the recorded music industry had severe difficulties in adequately reacting to technological improvements and changes in consumers’ needs. Which business models are best suited to the new circumstances is not yet clear. Thus, experiments with alternative business models are essential.

Many product-based companies are seeking to improve their competitiveness by moving toward service-based business models.
