Two years ago, one could get $5/album, but now consumers are becoming smarter. Or dumber, and sheepisher, with programs like KaZaA. Some even own burners, but are too lazy to download themselves, even if they have high-speed DSL. Which is fine with me, its their loss. Plus, I know people. I know people.
Nowadays, consumers are willing to buy an album for $2-$3, some even demand $1, but I try to not let that deal close. Its just money.
