The EU challenges the dominance of the Big 6, And that’s Good!

Looks like there is some EU (European Union) backlash against the Big 6, the 6 companies that control most arts.  The Big 6 are NBC Universal, Paramount Pictures, Sony, Twentieth Century Fox, Disney and Warner Bros.

Their dominance has spotlighted a few mostly generic musicians, writers, filmmakers, and marginalized most of the rest!  When there are only 6 choices we don’t have much choice.  There has to be thousands making art and competing in a somewhat level playing field, before we have great art again.  The internet is challenging these 6, and so are some regulators in Europe.  Glad to see more are joining the cause to get back to great art! – Tom Hendricks
