Mp3 Music - Why Pay?
After reading a Itunes.com Press Release which claims that Itunes has sold over 5 billion songs, it got me thinking....
My first reaction was to think the numbers were false. I mean seriously, 5 billion songs is a f'n outrageous number! That's nearly a song for every person on earth. Personally, I have never purchased a song online - and I never will. Not because of ideology - rather because the same music can be found for free, and I am not in the habit of paying for things that I can get for free.
I haven't even been to a record store in over 6 years. The only CD's I've purchased we're blank ones. I never thought I was any different than anybody else. So is this Itunes.com press release real? Could it be that I really am different than the rest of the world?
Im curious to know if your the type of person who purchases music online? If so - Why do you pay?
Seriously, you can just as easily go to any various Free MP3 Search Engine and download the music for free. I mean what pushes you to waste good money on something you can get for free?
Kudos to the Itunes / Apple marketing people. They have proven that it is more than possible in this word to sell 'ice to eskimos'.
