Thanks to the fast-moving technology, millions of songs are available on the internet and we are able to download - legally or illegally - songs we want in minutes. In recent years, digital music players like iTunes have made it possible for consumers to download and carry over 100 songs wherever we wish. Online music has proved that it is here to stay. Unfortunately, these new advancements have led to a contant decline in CD sales which have also led to many artist complaints. Now the question is (thinking economically)what about the musicians? Will the decline in CDs sales and other money making opportunities that were lost resulting from file sharing be enough to keep new musician from entering the industry? Or are concerts, fame, and other money making opportunities enough for artist to keep entering? What incentives are keeping complaining artist in the industry? And if artist are staying in the industry, there must be more incentives to keep them in the industry. If that is so, is file sharing such a big deal?
