The tech sector press keeps repeating this mantra yet the fact remains that
there is simply no evidence I'm aware of that reducing the price of
recordings increases sales volume. It isn't like this hasn't been tried by
both retail stores and labels.
If you ask people what they think, they'll tell you everything on the planet
is overpriced but when they actually want a recording bad enough to reach
for their wallet, the argument falls apart in the real world of commerce. In
fact most stores sell budget classics for a dollar ABOVE list price!
