haha. Admittedly, that's a very cute drawing. ^_^ I don't agree with it completely - I can see both sides (the sharing --> more sales, versus the sharing --> losing money) of the issue.
The only comment I want to make is that I want to know that I'm spending my money on music that I will actually like and listen to when I purchase CDs. As you may or may not know, I'm a huge fan of Asian music of all sorts - Japanese pop, Korean hip hop, anime soundtracks for series not yet available in the United States, video game music - and often, these types of music are hideously
expensive. They can be almost twice the amount of a similar release in the United States, because they are imported. Yes, an album released by a Japanese singer, bought from an online retailer, can cost around $40, without
the added cost of shipping.
So I download music to "preview" it. No, I don't delete it 24 hours after I do. But when I do like an artist enough, I religiously purchase and collect albums or, if I'm a big enough fan, I start buying their discography. But with Asian music so expensive to purchase from the States, I'll be damned if I just buy something without knowing what it sounds like first.
Anyway, the point was I can see both sides of the argument and do, of sorts, agree with both sides. But the picture is still cute.
