yes a revolution in copying… this rulez… make everything free !

also cars :slight_smile: No, but serious, i think software should be free and the people who make it should get funds from big companies who most need those software or maybe goverments. I think everyone should have a comptuer or something and there must be a LITTLE tax on it for the software industrie to pay them, of course those people also have to live ! don’t forget that…

The big five are a bunch of fat cats. They take too much of a %age of each CD sale. It would be nice if it were true. Then a large number of new labels would pop up. Pitty that the big five will never weaken their strangle hold on the artest’s pocket book.

CD Record:

Production pr. piece: $0.30
Labelling pr. piece: $0.10
Packaging pr. piece: $0.15
This is the bare costs for production of the cds.
Lets put on the country’s different expenses in form of taxes etc. and we come up with a production price of NOT bigger than $1.5 each. then HOW the fuck is it possible that the local stores etc takes (scandinavia for instance) around $10-15 pr. title. !?!

This means , as i know some artists who has gotten their cds sold in stores, which they get around $0.5-$1.0 pr. piece actually doesnt earn that much… which leaves us with the facts that both MUSIC companies and resellers earn TOO much!!! and this is a fact! … listen up morons. Put down the prices on music cds and you’ll sell more.

yes i know, you CAN sell them for let say producing costs are about $1 each. Then the distributer etc etc, let say they al want $1 doller / piece… so a cd should be much higher than about $5 or $6 i think.

I completely made this story up. "

“Submitted by: Capt. Blackbeard”

Oh yeah, that’s the boss from Sony right? Or is it the bad guy from Peter Pan? Or the bad guy from The Swan Princess? Well, at least we’re already familiar with this guy.
