forecasts while others suggest that it was an intentional
strategy. What is you take on this?
• How is your electronic division and music division responding
to concerns over MP3 format piracy issues and your secure yet
not very popular format?
• How has the vision of your founder, who recently passed
away, been passed on to the new management team at Sony?
• How has the dissatisfaction of some CD retailers over your
strategy to sell directly to consumer affected your distribution
strategy via SonyStyle.com?
