Good news for promoters of Digital Music Rights, it seems like the newer generation of music fanatics are preferring more of the licensed audio CD’s they buy of stores as opposed to those they get of the internet. They say they prefer to get the best tracks of their favorite independent artists off the shelves where they can show of the artwork and get the bonus tracks as opposed to the totally legal tracks they get from ITunes or other sources that charge an average of $1.00 per song.
I mean, we still get the hottest tracks and music from P2P and other file sharing sites students say in an article from the Stanford Daily, yet they have a knack for supporting independent artists who do get to come out with nice music yet they are not available online due to lack of commercial backing. They may or may not have these songs form the other sources yet still opt to buy the real thing to allow their favorite artists to get the money they deserve to promote and improve their music, for who knows they might make it big someday.
These new additions to the digital age of music after the reason for the huge increase in the sales of audio CD are who suddenly feel the urge to go original. They are after the artwork and literature from the originals. They buy them of the shelves after having them for sometime off the internet wanting more from the artists that the digital forms can have. There are those who still go purely illegal, but the majority are beginning to see the light so to speak in terms of the advances their favorite artists get from the sponsorships and other stuff they earn off the legal stuff. Many students get music through ITunes which is one of the most popular music source and playback devices due to the iPod which is almost in every classroom. They accompany their users from the shower to the canteen to the gym when they are used again and again. Their small size makes them ideal for students who seem to love music from all genres and artists from all over as they seek distance form hectic school life.
