The inevitable decline of CDs

http://www.dailytitan.com/2011/04/the-inevitable-decline-of-cds/より転載

Almost 11 years ago, stores like Tower Records and Wherehouse Music were mobbed with over 2.4 million people waiting to purchase N'Sync's No Strings Attached album.

Today, music stores like those are almost non-existent, and those that are still in business do not receive much foot traffic in the CD aisles.

The sales of compact disc albums have seen a significant decline since that record week in 2000. Nielsen Sound Scan reported that over 730 million units sold in 2000. In 2010, album sales hit an all-time low of 326 million units sold, including digitally downloaded albums.

"Nobody wants to go through the trouble of going to a music store, finding and buying a CD, opening the package, etc. Now we just click a button on the Internet and instantly have music," said Keegan Gogerty, 22, a singer/songwriter and radio-TV-film student.

Digitally downloading music has played a major role in the decline of CD sales, but the biggest factor is the illegal digital downloading of music.

Pirating music has been on the rise since Napster launched its peer-to-peer file-sharing software in 1999. Napster was known for allowing users to share and trade their MP3 files with one another over the Internet for free.

Napster was later shut down after multiple lawsuits, but more peer-to-peer outlets surfaced, such as Kazaa, Morpheus and LimeWire.

Peer-to-peer sharing has grown from MP3 sharing to multiple-file sharing and torrent sharing.

"I don't blame people for not wanting to purchase music. If I want to support a band, I will attend their concerts or buy a T-shirt. That is where they receive the most royalties anyway," said Charlie Hatano, an advertising graduate student.

"We live in a generation of simple living, the digital age," Gogerty said.

Online music stores such as iTunes and Napster give consumers the option to purchase music at the click of a button.

However, Ashley Sutton, 24, a psychology major, still buys compact discs.

"Nothing beats getting a new CD, reading the booklet and reading the lyrics," said Sutton. "I agree Internet downloading is more convenient, but I find owning a physical CD collection rewarding, rather than clogging up my computer with music I download."

The music industry has tried to crack down on the peer-to-peer file-sharing software programs, but people are still using different forms of illegally downloading or sharing music.

"I'll admit that I have had friends burn an album for me or copy them into my computer for my iPod," Sutton said. Making copies of CDs, illegally downloading the album and sharing, it is all the same.

In an interview with USAToday.com, the Recording Industry Association of America's (RIAA) CEO said illegal music sharing has been "contained."

"I remember people downloading one song at a time with Napster. More recently I have seen people download 10 albums at the same speed they could download one song in 1999," Hatano said.

Youtube映画を観る人々へ

最近ものすごい気になること。

WinnyLimewireBittorrentとかのP2Pダメだという人がいる。P2P著作権を犯すのはダメだという人がいる。正しい、間違いない。その一方で、その人はYoutubeやらニコニコ動画TVやら映画を物凄い観てる。声を大にして言いたいね。

やってること同じだよ?

P2Pダメなんじゃないよ?著作権違反がダメなんだよ?そこらへんを物凄い勢いで勘違いしてる人が、これまた凄い勢いで増えてる。

P2Pニコニコ動画Youtubeの順に悪いっていう考え方。重要情報流出騒ぎとか2chとかの影響で、アングラの香りのするものほど悪いという印象を持っているっぽい。なんじゃそりゃ。

P2Pをひとしきり批判した後に、「で、Youtubeから○○(映画)落としたいんだけど?」って。もう笑って良いのか、指摘してあげたら良いのか分からない僕は、ポーカーフェイスで落とし方を教えるだけでした。もうなんていうか、最近見なくなったあのサムライ芸人に切ってもらいたい。

「あんた、Winnyダメだよって言うじゃなーい?でも、あんたのしてることも真っ黒ですから!残念!(ry 全員切腹!」
