This is the mentality that will prevent art. This is the mentality that exists unfortunately. This is the mentality that will prevent a lot of people's favorite bands/artists that could have been.
What are you talking about? The internet has allowed art to exist more than it could before. I buy music, but I'm in the vast minority.
People are NEVER going to buy music again. It's been free for too long. It's time to come up with new creative ways to make money in the industry.
Your response is absolutely ridiculous and simply wrong.
