we have to think in steps..


eventually, artists won't be able to SELL music in a recorded form in retail and it will localize music.

the internet will continue to be where to get your tunes

i dont know if this can be prevented but expect concert tickets and memorabilia prices to rise

they're already finding other ways to make money.. ring tone sales, product endorsement deals, concerts.. etc.. they may be making less money off the music itself (cds), but without music, they cant make any of the other money, so they cant stop that either

nowadays it isnt the music thats the product, but the artist themselves.. they have to work/think harder to make money, but theres still money to be made, so that shouldnt stop them from making music

does anyone really think that any industry wont fall off at some point in time...

i mean they are sellin less... but that dont mean they are makin less money there are many roads that lead to money...an a lot a artists are already on them... tha ones with some business mentality

an shit let tha industry fall off... its flooded with bullshit anyways... maybe good music will emerge again... once little boys an girls realize a dance/weaklyrics wont make them multimillionaires...

but i can see this argument being used...by high level government wanting to put sanctions on tha internet...

I wondered why

an artist like, Jay Z or 50 or someone of high merit in the industry, doesn't get some kinda deal done with Apple and create some sort of iPod album. everything will be about the iPod, it'll have its own cover, be full of whatever content that artist is trying to sell, videos, music, future artists, have plenty of space left, and will cost 100- 300 bills. I dont know, maybe that cant happen
