The battle to keep music above $1

Not sure if you’ve been following the chatter in response to Former Warner Music U.K. executive Rob Dickins thought of pricing albums at $1, but I jumped into the conversation myself on Hypbot, as did many others. I think the best rebutle can be found here, courtesy of Ian Port in the SF Weekly.

To the fan, and the teenager of the day, it’s about the quality of the art, not the price point. The price point is only a concern to those invested in the art. Granted, that is often the artist themselves, but they too share a concern on the quality of their art, so there’s a joint POV there to be had at the heart of the art.

What’s your take?
