Yeah that's the hard question, because different people here have
-freedom of software
-low (or no) price
-bypassing the distribution chain
-bypassing the record companies/advertising companies/singles
charts/MTV awards industry
-freedom to remix
(among others?), and everyone here has at least two points of view:
-as a consumer
-as an artist
It will be hard to integrate all of these priorities.
