It's just about money, I've been in bands and they don't get hardly any of the money. Look what the record companies did to the bands in the 60's 70's and part of the 80's they basically took all the money the band made. My friend just put songs on iTunes, I think he gets an 1/8 of a cent for everyone purchased. The movie companies are trying to get everyone used to the digital copies so they can maintain control of everything, you don't own anything you get from digital download it's guaranteed only for 5 years. I suspect it's going to go far more downhill in the future. Software companies are pushing the subscription to the software crap. Where are all of the people that almost put Microsoft out of business the first time they tried that ? Does anyone recall that ?

These companies anymore are just out for themselves and nothing else and that's what the politicians are doing on both sides.

Maybe I'm just getting old and don't want to change but I can see where all this is headed in the future.

Pepperidge Farm remembers. People used to have principles. The internet has brought all new ways to program us, and it's working.
