I used to work in the finance department of one of the big music companies. They are awfully counterproductive re the creation of new and good music. They concentrate on trying to extract as much as possible from old rubbish to satisfy the endless greed of the usually unpleasant people on the board. If file sharers made a point of all only putting up five tracks for sharing with four being popular and one obscure then everything would be available as now but no one would get prosecuted as there would be no point for the record companies and even if they did you will never get fined much for sharing five tracks.
