If people keep pirating, they'll be forced to reduce prices and clean up their act. Kinda like what happened to the music industry.
@mesh4545 iunno, seems like "what happened" is that the largest music platforms just switched from selling music in form of audio files to letting people stream music from the internet. itunes turned into apple music, google play music turned into youtube music, and amazon music is still there, but i can't buy anything from there for some reason even though i can buy books from them.
pretty much the only option left if i still want those mp3s/oggs/flacs is bandcamp.
@be @devurandom @mesh4545 now i remember, it’s a data-harvesting comoany specializing in user mood. https://thebaffler.com/downstream/big-mood-machine-pelly
