Turns out the writer regards The Long Tail hypothesis as completely refuted by a single unpublished paper (or, if it is published, I've yet to find it). Not only that, but said paper just *happens* to be written by researchers from the following organization:

"PRS for Music is home to the world's best music writers, composers and publishers. Formed as The MCPS-PRS Alliance in 1997 with the PRS for Music brand adopted in 2009, the organisation brings together two royalty collection societies; MCPS and PRS. We exist to collect and pay royalties to our members when their music is exploited in one of a number of ways – when it is recorded onto any format and distributed to the public, performed or played in public, broadcast or made publicly available online."

Hm. Think they might have a vested interest?
