People buy albums as much for the packaging as they do for the music. Otherwise not a single internet user with a cd writer would every by an album again.

Bighair,

I disagree. What I think Metallica and other people are misssing is that MP3s do not sound near as nice as WAVs and that they can only be played on the PC. I generally spend less than 5% of the time I listen to music listening to it on the computer. MP3s do not play on my home stereo, car stereo, or portable boom box.

When the standard home internet connection becomes DSL or better, the pipe will be big enough for WAVs which I think will lead to a more real problem. I really do not think there will be a solution for all when that time comes. At that time, the truth is music distribution system will have to change (like it or not).

BTW, I think that it is comical that Metallica wants to ban some users from Napster. It shows how little Metallica know about the anonymity of the net.

Big Dog (like this is my real name, but leave it to Metallica to think I got weird parents or some such)
