An article describing the continued RIAA filed lawsuits against people who download music via peer-to-peer applications. Their chief complaint is that users of a P2P service are causing the music industry to loses a huge amount of sales.

So, I’m not using any music swapping services, yet I’m not buying any music. I’m pretty disgusted at the music industry’s behavior towards it’s bread and butter (consumers). I bought a hell of a lot more music when they weren’t acting like arses. They’re prices are still too high, and they continue to pump too much money in to non-talents.

My point is that this is why music sales are declining. It’s not because of file swapping, it’s because of irrational behavior and resistance to change.
