Should music companies consider closing their physical CD divisions? Why or why not? What costs are relevant to this decision?;Article 2 - Warner Music?s ADA-centered strategy - in which they only distribute smaller indie acts until they reach a certain level of success and then sign them ? is very similar to the ?make or buy? and ?own or lease? scenarios covered in this unit.

Identify at least 2 relevant and 2 irrelevant costs.;Read Alexandra A. Seno?s article ? Beethoven Goes Digital.;Read Johnnie L. Roberts? article ? Edgar and the Indies.
