If it costs me $1000 to produce the first copy of my
music CD, and I cannot hope to recoup these
costs because the first bloke who buys it makes copies
without paying me a dime, I'll think twice about 
spending $1000. Maybe I'll revert to composing music
for the guy who pays me to play at his table, or
maybe I play someone else's music because I have
no time to compose. Or maybe I only make music to 
relax, and sell insurance for a living.
