Since itunes has revolutionized music and made cds a thing of the past, people are giving away their music for free, should concerts be free too? Why is the music industry giving in to the "give away" market... when was the last time you got a dvd for free, or went to the movies for free? How has the movie industry been able to protect their content/product and livelyhood and in the music world we give it away for free?
I completely get what you are saying... i just mean, how does a music person make their living, if people expect to go to a club and not pay a cover... Do you have to be Carrie Underwood to make money?
It is hitting the movie industry as we speak. I believe the speed of downloading content from the internet stalled the pirating of the movie industry but it is catching up fast. They are going to face the same issues the music industry is facing.
