Re: Paying for downloads (was:Re: <OFF-TOPIC>) (fwd)sn

Again. This was taken out of context of the conversation and was in direct
response to the question about live performances, not commercial cd's.

Ok, the assumption that internet delivery will replace cd's is absurd to 
Computer's haven't replaced paper (like everyone still thinks'll happen) 
never will in my opinion (I have a stack of legislative documents here on 
desk that I KNOW won't change). CD's haven't replaced LP's, maybe dwindled 
market for them, but they are far from being gone. I guess it depends on 
*type* of product you are looking for. Not everything I want or need is on 
net, and it never will be.
