I've yet to see much evidence of that.  Online distribution seems to love
middle men as much as any other distribution, and obviously _profitable_
middlemen are the ones providing the greatest benefit.  (According to
Wikipedia, "iTunes accounts for 70% of worldwide online digital music

That said, online distribution seems to love *different* middle men.  That
perhaps is more the problem ASCAP is having.
