bad cop, no donut.

are they kidding? hey kids - you can *pay even more* to download an album
than to buy the CD - isn't it *great*!! And as long as you want what we've
decided to give you, you can have *whatever you want*.

i think it was clay shirky who pointed out that the labels need to charge
so much because it's very expensive and difficult to make internet
distribution as inconvenient as real-world distribution...
