Music for free

I find it hard to believe that the big music companies though they could get away with the way they sell music for longer than they have.  People got tired of paying for a whole CD when all they wanted was one song.  Downloading it for free was the best solution with what we have to work with today.
It happens time and time again where there becomes an easier and cheaper way to get our media.  When the copy machine was invented, it was illegal for the public to have one because of possible copyright issues with books.  Of course it was made legal due to its extreme usefulness in our every day lives.  TV was frowned upon in its inception by the movie theater companies because it stole business by keeping people entertained at home. Publishing companies are still thriving and theaters are all over the place.
The music industry isn’t much different.  The demand for music is still high so instead of making money through CD sales, they have found other ways of making a living at it.  Venues and music festivals are more popular than ever and merchandising is always a big money-maker.  The only one loosing out are the big record companies who have become obsolete.  They have taken advantage of the artists and fans for long enough. It’s definitely time they get put in their place.


About petetjohnson

I have recently graduated from the Institute of Production and Recording with a degree in Audio Production Engineering. I will return to earn another degree in Sound Design for the Visual Media. This has been a career that I have always wanted and I finally found the school that can get me there. My focus is in post-production and sound design. The projects in school have prepared me for various tipes of post-production, sound design and field recording techniques. I would like to stick around in the Twin Cities area and gain professional experience working on anything post, digital video editing, field recording or sound design related.
