CDs aren't expensive, they're cheap,

CDs aren't expensive, they're cheap, dammit! So according to the RIAA, I should be glad that CDs cost what they do, because they should really cost $34 each. Also, the current price levels help support the 90% of releases that aren't profitable. Maybe if CDs were priced more reasonably (like, for example, audio cassettes) more acts would be profitable because CDs could be an impulse purchase. Just an idea.

I do wonder if the expected FTC settlement will have any effect on prices in Canada. (Link free from Tomalak, although it should really cost more.)
