The Golden Rule

As a music business minor I had to take a few low-level classes about law. One teacher asked the class “Does anyone here know the golden rule?”

You know the golden rule–treat others the way you want to be treated.

That’s one golden rule, but there’s actually another golden rule that’s more realistic.

“Them’s with the gold make the rules.”

I thought of that moment while reading about Apple’s plan to take a 30% cut for subscriptions.
