We take for granted that we can find music on the Web - and Artist details
will be available about the track.
However, I find myself wondering who keyed in the information to make it
available. When was it done and what was the incentive - who owned it, etc.

That depends on many things, smaller band will do this sort of stuff themselves including art work and videos, and will write their won music and lyrics.
While some of the larger more 'popular' might well have people write and do everything for them.
When you fill details for tracks in on Windows Media Player yourself,
does it submit them back to the databases that it normally picks up
from? A few like entries could automatically update the databases.
Well, I contributed entries for CDDB, for those CD's I had which were
not in the database at the time. Rather annoyingly, one of these
databases switched to being commercial, having started off as open.

This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from...
It's all analogue, at least anything we (as in human beings) can hear
is analogue. If it claims to be digital it just means that one bit of
the route from original sound to our ears happens to be digitised.
In a similar vein, who uploads all the megahousr of PRON that gets
uploded to servers everyday - who pays for the massive bandwidth
required, where does it get produced and who pays for it? Doesn't seem
to be sponsered by advertising.
Same with the newsgroup films and music - what's in it for the uploader?
Many of the businesses that supply this kind of content seemed to start
out as collaborative efforts... i.e. you can download the tracklist for
your CD collection here, and if you find any that are not in the
database please feel free to create your own with our editor. BTW, you
can upload the result back to us as well.
Since you would probably want to do the work for your own collection,
there was little additional cost to allow others to share it.
Its how something like IMDB started. I remember a time when you needed
to download the client to access the database, and then a complete
database plus weekly updates to get in all the new bits. It was a shared
community effort to keep it updated.
