Just as pay-to-download services are starting to take off, the major music companies are looking for ways to increase the prices we pay for music online. They are being incredibly stupid about this:
“The industry is also mulling other ways to charge more for online singles. One option under consideration is bundling hit songs with less-desirable tracks. … Some executives, for example, believe they should be charging a premium for the online versions of older tracks because consumers may be willing to pay more for harder-to-find material.
They will kill online music sales, given half the chance. Are they insane?
