they have failed to embrace the new technology and monetise file sharing.
That's why iTunes, Amazon Music, etc. are selling tons of MP3s because they ignore the new technology.
Opposed to expensive eBooks, at a measly $0.99 a song we don't really need to share them do we? It's not like they're $8 a track or anything, sheesh.
Also, how do you "return" the shared music?
We tried DRM's and they suck, then they shut down like Yahoo! Music and you're left with a big steaming heap of digital garbage.
The current system works if it weren't for the jerks.
FWIW, I know some extreme 'file sharers' and some of them are just insane. They'll download anything for free just to have it just because they can. They have stacks of DVDs filling shelf after shelf with pirated crap. I'm pretty sure it's a sickness.
