What’s New In Entertaiment
The entertainment industry is providing a great deal of content for the media, and people are buying it up through services like iTunes. In spite of the economic downturn, many artists, record labels and independent producers are still thriving, and some are contributing to society with their work. For example, the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) is funding a group of world class scientists called SU2C to get research underway quickly and accelerate progress against cancer.
Entertainment can be adapted to any scale from the personal choice of an individual who selects from the now enormous variety of pre-recorded products available for home entertainment, to the setting of a banquet for two, to performances intended for thousands and even for a global audience. It is often characterized by amusement, although it may serve serious purposes such as ceremony or religious festival, or as political satire.
