Real Quick: studies (WSJ, for one) have shown that dropping prices on downloads would result in an exponential increase in sales. In other words, make it inexpensive enough for people to purchase and people will skip the piracy.

I'm not one for pirating (|I'd rather pay and support the artists I like) and I think I probably would spend more were prices lower than they are now. If I can get it from my Emusic account rather than iTunes, I do it.

Offer potential customers value, stop seeing every download as a lost sale and actually embrace the online market.

It's amazing how this is working out just fine for many independent artists yet the mainstream/old-guard still want to harp on about piracy instead of moving on.

Though I thought the music industry was already dead because of home taping?
