Internet-1, fat corporations-0

Universal Music has announced that they are dropping the cost of CDs from $17-19 to $13 to “drive music fans back into retail stores”. The music industry is finally getting the message that Napster/Gnutella/Kazaa sent. Anyone who downloaded music on the internet should pat themselves on the back. And if you didn’t, be sure to give the sales clerk a $4-6 tip on each CD you buy.

I think CD prices should be under $10, actually, and this is just one company. But this is a promising start!
