Music industry players on Grammys, tech issues

It's been a turbulent decade for the music industry and its millions of fans. While new technology has made it easier to access to the songs people love, it's also presented problems for record companies, artists, and fans around the world.

"CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King recently sat down with several of the biggest players in the industry -- Clive Davis, Smokey Robinson, Esperanza Spalding, and Mark Ronson -- to discuss the most pressing issues facing the music industry. The panel also talked about what they're hoping for Sunday night at the Grammy Awards.
