The record industry says that file sharing is a key factor in the decline in record sales in recent years.
It must be "our" fault! It couldn't possible have anything to do with the recording industrys' management incompetence or failure to move with the times.
All those grubby little board room misers, rubbing their hands at the cost savings of digital format music, yet wringing those same hands that they have to spend some, too make it easy for people to buy "legal" digital music, without loosing any of the iron grip that they hold the artists in - let alone the musics consumers!
