Music downloads don't affect sales, they effect sales.

Speaking of sales, there's a boycott going on, and I'm part of it. I have been for at least the past 10 years. A couple things:
  • I quit buying music from record stores before it was possible to download it, because I didn't like paying $18 for a CD with a couple tracks I like.
  • It's not the fault of the consumers that the record companies weren't able to get off their fat, litigious asses and work out some way to sell music online.
  • I sincerely hope the RIAA dies a quick death, and to read the opinions of artists who agree with me, check out the boycott link.
  • If I buy a song, I want to be able to listen to it where and when I want, in the encoding format I want, on as many devices as I want.
  • I support artists, I go to live shows as often as I possibly can, and I buy the $5-10 CDs from the artists if I like what I hear.
  • I've bought more CDs at live shows the past 10 years than in record stores.
  • It's a free market, and the consumers make the choices. If you're a consumer, let your voice be heard.
  • It's a free market, and the consumers make the choices. If you're a record executive, get over it. You've all been getting free stuff for years anyways, you hypocrites.
