Ravaging Radio IV
Here's a dope slap for you: People who download MP3's are more likely to buy CD's. Huh. I mean, this is what I've always thought -- that being better informed about new music, being able to sample wares before purchasing, and being able to have friends recommend musical groups increases one's propensity to spend more money on new music. (This is sure the case for me.) Seems like similar effects would be present in the Net radio world. Pay heed, RIAA, Copyright Arbitration Royalty Panel, and Library of Congress. The Net's not the reason record sales are falling. Maybe it's the quality of major labels' products.
