The link above will take you to an opinion piece at TechWeb.com's site by Fredric Paul.
Remember when CDs were just coming in? The music companies told us that once the format was established and manufacturing costs came down, prices would fall and artists would receive an increased percentage of revenues. Really, they did! And in front of Congressional committees, if I recall correctly. Did any of that happen? Nope! Not a bit of it. Their promises were conveniently forgotten, though the conditions forecast to lower costs came true in spades.
Our listeners probably already know everything that is in this article. But there are a lot of folks who simply don't get what the fuss is all about. If you know one or more of them, send them this link and explain that what we are seeing from the music and other content companies is simply a refusal to accept reality and get on with business in a different way.
