mcguiver writes: After reading all of the complaints about digital music and the recording industry I was curious as to the feasibility of Apple opening their own recording studio. It seems to me that if the artists are really getting ripped off by all of the recording industries then they would be excited to have a studio where they could get more. If Apple was to charge 80 cents per track and give the artists 30 cents and keep the other 50 then both would come out on top and more people would by from them due to the lower cost. They could also keep there music bundled in Albums that they could choose if they wanted tracks sold separately or only by the Album. Technology seems to be moving away from CDs anyway. But since I don't know much about the music industry, I was wondering, what would it take for a project like this to happen?
