I saw an article in USA Today that record companies are going to start sending pop-ups to people who download music saying what you're doing is wrong. What'll they think of next? If they send start this, where does it end?

This is one of the dumbest ideas I've ever heard. I read in USA Today that it's going to cost millions of dolars to do this. If they have that much money to blow, just cut the fucking record prices. I would be much more likely to buy CDs if they are $9.99.

You'd think they woulda learned that already... haven't cheaper albums sold more? -_-

Actually, they've organized a huge public awareness campaign to get people buying music again (like they ever stopped?). It's called the Value of Music Campaign. Being in radio, I've been getting promo stuff for this for the past month. Try this website and laugh:

I bought a CD recently...it cost me close to $30 canadian, and contained 30 minutes of music. Hmmmm....a buck a minute. I think I'll stick to burning CDs until the price of music goes down.

I've always been one for supporting local talent and artist (cancon, baby!) but seriously, if they're too expensive to buy, then why bother?

I read a report today that they were planning to create a worm that can be picked up when you download songs. Really, is this a better idea than reducing prices?
