I'm not willing to buy CD's...
Authored by: shurakai on Apr 30, '03 01:17:02PM

But a dollar for a song is worth it. I'm sure almost the same amount goes to the record company, but I feel better about not paying the overpriced amount of $17.00 for a CD that cost them .50 cents.

50 cents? Well...

I'm not trying to justify price gouging on the side of the
industry, but it actually takes a bit more than plastic to send
those CDs out. To break even (even at $17 a pop) takes quite a
LOT of sales. Plus, you've got to make up for all the flops your
company puts out that didn't break even. The sad part is that
unless the artist is also the producer and/or songwriter, they get
small beans compared to the label. I'm curious to see the flow
of the 99 cents apple gets and who in the recording industry gets
what!

By the way I am choosing not to buy songs online. (Gotta stay
on topic!)
