To Pay or Not to Pay?

To Pay or Not to Pay?

In the world of music, buying songs online is a huge thing. With the buying of CDs in stores in decline because of monster companies like iTunes and Rhapsody, more and more musicians have become more reliant on the sales of their songs online. However, with the rise of pirating, musicians are making less money and aren’t as fabuously wealthy as it was once thought they were. Limewire, the Pirate Bay, and Music Lemon are just a few of the hundreds of pirate sites where free music can be found.

Why is pirating on the rise?

Well, it is a known (and often painful) fact that iTunes has a monopoly on the legal music downloading business. Since iPods are only compatible from the get-go with iTunes, it is difficult for computer-illiterate folks such as myself to synch iPods with other music sources like Rhapsody. Since most are stuck using iTunes, the good people of the world are forced to pay 99 cents a song–no, wait, have you been on iTunes lately? Try $1.29.

Whaaat???

$1.29 for one song? Is that a joke? Are you kidding me? Hahaha screw that, I’m not paying that much for one stupid song!

That was the first thing that ran through my head when I saw that iTunes had raised the price of almost every single song that I wanted. As I searched frantically through the store to find one 99 cent song, I found nothing but lame 70’s one-hit wonders and other such things that I have no interest in.

Perhaps that is why pirating has become so popular. iTunes is robbing us of our money by forcing us to pay an outrageous price for a song that we will probably get sick of hearing in a few months. I don’t know about you, but I’m not about to be sucker-punched each time I get on iTunes.

If it wasn’t for iTunes being greedy and selfish, then perhaps pirating would be less of a problem. However, with the rising of  their prices, I doubt very many people will still be willing to be so generous.
