Piracy blamed for CD sales slump

Perhaps instead of branding everyone who downloads music a thief, the music industry should make it possible for people to download music in a usable format. That means: not a crippled version that doesn't allow copying to a portable player or sharing with someone, but a version that offers all the same features that I can get by buying the music on CD. Or if it is a crippled version, make it less, rather than more expensive.

Oh, and maybe the music industry should consider that the QUALITY of the product they put out is the reason that less music sales are happening.
