The Record Industry's Decline June 26, 6: Rosen and others see that period as disastrous for the business. That's when we went from music having real value in people's minds to music having no economic value, just emotional value.
The RIAA, the labels, and all the other middlemen have an overdeveloped sense of both how necessary and how valuable they are. Britney Spears ain't it.

Cassette tapes killed 8-tracks, CDs killed cassettes Because they had no faith in its viability and instead spent tons of money on lawsuits against indiviuals who could not realistically pay them back for "damages caused" they are in turn self defeating. The reality is, most people want to use the mediums that best suit their music enjoyment.
