I wonder… Is it really worth it? Is it all too late? I wonder what format they will use? If it is MP3 I shall not spend money for a poor quality sound (compared to the original). I have a radical solution to all this piracy problem. DROP THE PRICE OF CD’S !!! £12.00 for a cd is taking the piss. It costs less than £1.00 to produce. That includes distribution, artist royalties, artwork, production everything. Sell them in the shops for £5.00 each. Record company makes £2.00 and the retailer makes £2.00. End result is that the origional costs little more than the pirate version and is better quality. Also i would imagine that the volumes would go through the roof. Everyones a winner. However there is a problem with this idea… It needs a CEO with some balls to make the bold move of doing it first. He who dares wins…:X
