Under a blanket (or ‘compulsory’ license) for consumer downloads, record labels fear they would lose control of their hard-fought grip on physical distribution channels, and lose control over pricing.

A bit old by now but this one speaks for itself. Michael Geist always has interesting things to say about these.
