October 2005[edit]

In the statement "Some in the music recording industry believe vertical integration is the best way to survive in the modern, post-Napster environment." who are the "some?" Many in the music industry, such as artists and artist's representatives, would disagree with this philosophy. My feeling is that the "some people" in this statement might refer to members of the RIAA, who want to maintain a stranglehold on the means of production, distribution, and marketing. Perhaps the original author would like to provide some attribution? --malber 15:42, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

Maybe I am reading in to the definition, but it seems to be slanted towards the witer's opinions. Microsoft? A better example would have been the movie studios in their heyday. They made the pictures, they had huge stables of contracted actors, producers and writers, they owned movie theaters in which they would only show their movies.

Carneggie "introduced the concept the concept of 'vertical integration'"??[edit]

The student website cited here (quote nr. 1: http://www.slu.edu/x28249.xml) only says that "Andrew Carnegie monopolized the steel industry by employing vertical integration to tie up all aspects of steel production and distribution.", nothing about the introduction of the theoretical concept. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Torotazo (talkcontribs) 10:03, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Spam?[edit]

The subsections for American Apparel and Reliance seems to be dispensable. --Tom1492 (talk) 14:27, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

I agree, it seems like almost half the sources are about American apparel. Kinda spammy. Sorry if I'm using the talk page incorrectly, don't normally comment on stuff like this. 108.206.100.165 (talk) 00:32, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
