Lilli Marleen

Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

You look for the Song Lilli Marleen?

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Online Piracy
Hmm.. let's see - what are the facts?
People try to sell music. They offer it on CD's or for Downloads.
The sells are going down recently.
People are able to burn CD's by themselves and copy songs with a never known quality.

Is there a coincidence? All we can do is guess. It seems like people are consuming even more music than before, but aren't paying for it. Can we be sure?

Not really, they might think to offer just better music for selling more.
Hey, not all new music is crap, but the music-industry does look for young, nice and marketing figures and not for good singers, who worked on their songs for ages, who tours with the Band for months and years before the "Big Show" will start.

This doesn't mean that it's just "the people's" fault, but I still buy the music I like because I want the singer to profit from me liking his music.

But what was the music industry doing the last time? Make music more and more expensive while "the experience" the buyer gets, becomes worth less. If they'd get more, they might pay more.
