Vinyl market in crisis - German distributor Neuton to announce insolvencyPosted on 01/12/08
Neuton, one of the biggest (vinyl) music distributors, is about to announce its insolvency today. After the collapse of the UK distributor Amato and the Japanese distributor Cisco, the whole vinyl label scene and the distributors were under extreme pressure. Neuton worked with many top electronic labels, distributing music for diverse labels including Four Twenty, Tresor, Vakant, or Perlon and has worked in the past with labels like Bpitch control, Playhouse, Klang or M_nus.

This is can be considered a bullet point item in the argument that illegal downloads is not the prime source of music sales downfall - because people who purchase vinyl aren't going to stop to illegally download music.
