When these changes do happen though, some businesess adapt, some complain and some sue.
My personal favourite examples come from the music industry. Metallica for example is well known for suing Napster in 2000 to try and recoup money lost from album sales. A move that I'm sure got there zero more fans. Large record companies have successfully lobbied in the UK to prosecute people illegally downloading music as well yet it is still popular and I'm sure the move has also done nothing to stop falling revenues or gain them customers. So, what is a band to do if traditional music sales have tanked due to technology.
There is also change coming to the world of book keeping and accounting. New technologies allow for online service and easy tracking. i doubt there will be lawsuits but I'm sure that there will be well established CPAs, CAs and book keepers who will choose to complain but then there will be those like Jody Padar and Jason Blumer who lovingly adapted to the change early on.
What about your business, is your strategy to adapt happily, complain and ignore or lobby and sue?
