« Authors slam reading aloud ebooks | Main | When is a Kindle like a $10 piece of vinyl? »

Just goes to show that people know they are being overcharged for media (whether print or music). It boggles my mind why publishers don't lower their prices so they can sell more legal copies. This is especially true of intangible electronic media. Electrons just aren't worth that much. Publishers seem trapped in the vicious cycle of shrinking sales leading to higher prices leading to shrinking sales. They only way out is to make media cheap enough that people will not think twice before hitting the Buy button. I'd happily pay ten cents for an mp3 file or a couple bucks for an ebook, but at the current prices I have not and will not buy any.
