Any model that is based on something other than selling copies is a good business model, like Spotify or Pandora, because the whole model of the entertainment industry is based on the production, on the distribution and the selling of copies. The Internet is the biggest copy machine ever invented. So the logic goes that copies for email and websites and videos are good, but for mp3s it is bad. Trying to make a distinction between what is a good copy and what is a bad copy is the most absurd crusade in modern history. And it is bound to fail.
