Very interesting article HERE. Although the “digital revolution” has been bemoaned by the music industry and photography so often that I don’t think people any hear it anymore.
But I think this is a different way of addressing the issue:
1) Using an example that is truly legendary
2) This quote:
But in truth, we do ask: Every time we go to a library or shop, we want it to be full of new books, and when we search various channels (legal and illegal) for new music and movies, we expect to find them. Someone has to produce this content – this art – and sadly, the shoemakers’ elves are all busy stitching elsewhere. And after it’s been produced, someone has to buy it. Or not buy it, as is more likely the case.
It comes down to a question of value: Do we value artists’ effort?
