Too small to market One of the nice things about the old Napster was how you could locate impossible to find music on it. Just like you can get anything on eBay, you could find anything on Napster. Since the recording industry cartel has decided to go for tethered downloads (a strategy both expensive in turns of bandwidth, and hateful in terms of customer experience) all those wonderful obscure songs that customers loved but cartel execs couldn't be bothered offering (market too small) will vanish. Lessig has some good insights on how draconian copyright destroys culture.
