Article on Entertaiment
The entertainment industry has gone through a major change with the growth of Internet technology. The Internet has allowed recording artists, producers and filmmakers to distribute their work directly to consumers, without the middle men. This has saved on production and marketing costs, but it has also transformed the business model for some traditional media. The word “entertainment” comes from the Medieval Latin inter tenere, with the prefix inter meaning “inside,” and the suffix tenere, which is related to the Indo-European root of ten, which means to stretch or hold. Entertainment is an art form that can be adapted for different media and can reach new audiences through creative remix.
