CDs: What a Crappy Present!

Annie sent me this link to this website. I also saw this site yesterday at ScreenSavers on TechTV. They were discussing how CDs make crappy presents. However, the site is really a campaign against the greedy recording industry. With the cost of making CDs being under $1 and most artists receiving just about the same amount in royalties per CD, the rest of the $18 you pay goes to the Armani-suited, Porshe-driving recording industry executive. Beyond the Britneys and Justin Timberlakes, most artists are struggling and are not making money from their work. Go to the site and also downhillbattle.org on how we can help the artist earn a living from their own music.
