What is childish is the notion that the price point that will bring
the current pirates back into the music stores to buy rather than
steal is anything close to what record store owners and recording
companies need to stay in business. When it's all said and done the
projected return on their investment under the required pricing model
probably will dictate that they'll be better off in another business.

Granted the current prices are outrageous considering the current
business model consists of each new CD having a couple of good songs
and the rest mostly filler.

All in all I'd say the future looks somewhat bleak for the record
companies. Also the pirates had better be at least marginally more
intelligent than Jammie Thomas because it doesn't look like juries are
going to tolerate commercial anarchy.
