Yesterday afternoon a rather interesting live debate took place on the Guardian website regarding the music industry's grasp of the digital age. The top notch debaters who gathered to provide their valuable input and opinions were DJ Mary Anne Hobbs, Chris Maples of Spotify, Rachel Robb of independent label Stolen Recordings and Universal Music's director of digital, Paul Smernecki.
