Re: Misrepresenting history much?

That STILL sounds like "this generation that decided not to pay" because if it hadn't been for the "free samples," they STILL wouldn't pay for the dead-tree copy, meaning they STILL aren't paying. Because they're not paying no matter what you do, you basically have to squeeze blood from a stone before someone else does, undercuts you, and runs you out of business (and it's happening in the media as well as in retail, all over the place--it's THAT cutthroat).
