« Our survey: download membership was going to be popular | Main | Audio interview on IT Conversations »

May 14, 2008



I'm not surprised. I've noticed quite a lot of people who've started to make a statement out of not buying CD's anymore. A few years ago it felt like downloading was popular mostly due to it being so freakishly smooth and simple, you literally had the collected culture of the world at your fingertips and a simple search was enough to get you what you wanted. Lately I feel the reasons have shifted more towards "those companies can shove it, they're not getting a dime from me ever again", especially among the younger generations who grew up downloading culture. It's going to take a long time to get rid of all that bad-will, if ever... so it's good to see that Magnatune is still alive and kicking, wishing you all the best in the future!

PS. That lifetime download membership looks mighty tempting!
