And if you want to be just a bit more than DIY, you have to invest in
putting your music on the road. That means transportable gear
professional enough for concerts and transportation itself.
It may be possible, to make music with gear for some 2-3 monthly incomes
in the western world but as soon as you are willing to make your music
heard, you have to spend a years income at least.
Some may say: "But I can produce great stuff with software in the box
only plus a vocal-mic and my old guitar for nearly nothing." That is
correct but only for music that can be produced that way. And there are
many great albums produced that way. But if your vision includes an
orchestra or a big metal-drumset or simply live-gigs with a band, you
have to follow and to pay for it.
So to make money with music or films is perfectly legitimate.
In a better world everybody interested in music would be aware of that
and pay his/her fair share to finance musicians without being forced to
by restriction management(and maybe even without the need to pay about
90% of that share not to the musician but to the distributing
companies). And in such a world technical restriction of
distributionability would be superfluous indeed.
