Reasoned mind

Yeah. That's what we need. More advertising. People should just pay for what they take so we don't have to be subjected to Madison Avenue mind control.


It's great that a massive band like Radiohead can make money and give their music away for free but most bands can't afford to do this. For those bands, the beauty of the internet is more about music discovery and people listening to and sharing their tracks – but why shouldn't they get paid when people listen to their tracks for free? This doesn't have to be the consumer who pays, but it can be ad-funded. That way everyone is happy – the consumer gets free music and bands get paid.
