Every worker should be entitled to a reasonable salary OK as every consumer should be entitled to pay a reasonable price for what he gets… Is it reasonable that any member of an obscure boys band, gets to the charts with one disc and 2 years later nobody knows who he is, but is entitled to get big houses/pools/cars and so on? And we have to pay $$$$$$$$$ for crap? Is it a fair salary that we ensure paying high prices for discs that are for 20+ years in the mkt, and have been sold as LP, K7, CD, DVD-Audio,SACD and what is yet to come? Books are a different story, but if you look at prices for some reference books at the universities, that will be used for a short period or only in a small part - if you look at these price, maybe it is not that strange that people is tempted to copy them. And at the end, who is getting the bulk of the cash revenews? The artist? the writter?
