Is Technology Enabling Musical Artists to Change the Game by Going Direct?

It will be interesting to see how musicians attempt to re-invent the industry and try to cut out the middle men with the major labels that usually have all the control. $15 will get you the MP3s and $15,000 will get them to visit your home.
