I tend to agree - I have sympathy for both sides of the argument but from a personal point of view I'm not buying much new music , mostly because of not liking much of it and/or not having any record stores left that stock it locally. That which I do buy is more often than not new releases from well established artists in our genre. Old music on the other hand (missed classics) I am spending quite a bit of time and money on.

If not for things like Spotify (MOG in my case) or Andrew's site I would have no idea that the new releases are out there , so if it weren't for the internet in one form or another I wouldn't be spending anything with anyone.

I think there are a few artists out there who are making the best of this - just like in media. Most of the newspapers have totally underestimated the challenge they face (only waking up when it's too late) , but a few niche players have totally blindsided them by getting on board the internet revolution early and innovating.

It's a complex situation that I don't pretend to understand fully but I can't see things changing - therefore it's surely more about innovating within the confines of the situation rather than protesting while going broke.
