    free metro on buses right?
    1. dutch think tank proposal to dutch goverment
    2. rest of article says unlikely in UK
    3. government/Apple/shops aren't stupid - like customers will go for it
    4. record company bosses are stupid. They think: piracy? raise prices! fair enough, but why don't they ever think: people go pirate due to high prices. lets lower prices! lower prices = more customers = more money (in long term)

    as for these illegal sites and their devotees, iTunes et al download figures are growing by the day.

    and i totaly agree with that point 4. if they stopped trying to take the **** with insane prices and sold cds at a reasonable price i would buy more than download. as it is i refuse to pay £16 for a 12 track cd that costs aboue 20p to produce!
