Well I am a Canadian consumer and about 70% of the new stuff I want to buy comes in on import: try paying on average $35 - $45 per cd because it is ONLY available on import, but I still buy the cd!

Artists get paid a royalty every time there song is played either on TV or radio, but how many artists actually get played on these media? They have to be making some money on album sales or else they have signed lousy contracts IMO. Getting nothing for an album that goes double platinum would really suck if you were an artist who signed a deal for a few hundred thousand and that's it.

How does the royalty thing really work? What happens with imports other than taxes and extra middlemen costs?

And no I don't buy CD-R's because I want the full original package wherever possible. I might take a CD-R for sampling purposes or in cases of very rare stuff but I will usually hunt ebay and second hand stores first. And even if I get it on ebay I won't pay above a certain price anyway.

My two cents, of which everybody gets a share.
