    I got a beautiful 16 x 16 album sleeve and an enclosed poster.  I think I was paying less than 99 cents a song.

    I pay 99cents without a problem and love it. Because I appreciate only having to pay for the song I want and getting it right away.  Maybe the kids don't. But if the kids won't, they might when the right gimmick is found.

      tweens and early adolescents haven't grown up in a culture where the people who were interested in digital music were also culturally tolerant of piracy, and also they aren't particularly technically savvy, so they buy Justin Bieber downloads in droves.

      Music piracy is highest in the demographic that also complains the loudest about the music industry not catering to their preferences: 18-34 year old males.
