one of the problems with so-called 'legal' music is that it is
controlled by mass-media and the Big Five record companies.

you'd be hard pressed to find a piece of Parmegiani or Luc Ferrari on there.

to find the music they want, young people have been turning to
file-sharing, and often buying the CDs afterwards. they want to support
artists, believe it or not - i've proved this through interviews and
articles ( what they don't want is - as Eliot calls it
- Hit Song Science. only lowest common demoninator teenagers buy that
stuff. people who are looking for good music often /have/ to turn to
file sharing to find a good band, and then afterwards, buy - or more
commonly - order their CDs via Amazon, as they dont have the opportunity
to find them in stores.
