Thought Of The Day

"What about the artist?" goes out the window the moment people start sourcing entertainment online. Then it becomes "what about the storefront?" and sales for the artist don't seem to matter anymore.

It's not the artists we support when we buy entertainment, it's the multiple industries between the artist and us. Our purchases are more about keeping those industries afloat than they are supporting the artist, yet it's that desire for supporting the artist that is exploited.
