The RIAA Can Take Their Legitimate Business and Shove It. Maybe people would buy music if the price of an album wasn't 40,000% of the cost of the disc itself. Sure, there are the mediocre costs of paying the musicians and the employees that actually do something, but five dollars is definitely a reasonable price for a new CD. I would be more lenient on the industry if the musicians got a real royalties, not just publicity from the release. In the 60s bands would actually write new music and would sometimes release two albums in a year because there was no pressure from the labels. Now the record companies are suing their potential customers. This is capitalism at its worst.
