Want a solution?
1)Cheaper and easier legal downloads.
2)Wider choice of legal downloads.
3)Extend the Digital Millenium Act to legally downloaded files.
4)Make the pop bands churn out more singles and less insipid albums.
5)Increase the efficiency of the mainstream trade: right now, unless you are a huge pop star, you get a miserable 0.25c for each one of your CDs sold
worldwide. The rest is swallowed by the highly ineffecient corporation. Smaller, indipendent labels (like German Nuclear Blast) give the artist a
bigger share and sell CDs at lower prices. And they make a profit too. That's why they have become so popular.
