But that's just a description. The music industry is not a virus which involuntarily 'evolves'. It is a business in which people make choices all along the way. I'm not blaming you of course. I'm just saying that the choices various players make matter. Nothing is inevitable.Believe me, I don't like it either, but I also recognize that the entertainment industry continually evolves.
I think this needs a solution, and that we have to come up with it. Otherwise, what ultimately happens to the business (and to the art) when 99% of artists can't make money from selling their music? We can't all sell t-shirts or accordian samples, or teach other musicians how to...what? starve? The implication of this model is: no more professional music business going forward. If 99% can't make a living, that means no pro music business, eventually.
Money doesn't care about the music business or about the art - when they've sucked the value out of the music business, they will just move onto the next thing. But some of us do care.
