The BPI are a bunch of turds...
They really are. I understand why they don't, but what they SHOULD be doing is turning around to the music industry and encouraging them to get innovative, and find new ways to sell music to customers more profitably and more cheaply.
I walked into HMV last week and an album is still £12+, yes it has always been this sort of price, but it doesn't mean that it always should be.
BPI - I would like:
1) Cheaper albums.
2) Free digital copies when purchasing a CD.
3) DRM-free music when purchased online.
Work with the technology industry to deliver these items, and I will feel better about buying music (and I already do), but for the time being, the organisations for whom you are lobbying are still considered a greedy, out-dated, old-fashioned, worse-than-bankers bunch of ...w...(rhymes). Sort THEM out.
