The existing music conspiracy

Music must become a verb again, not a noun. It's a service, not the production of a good. If we don't realize this soon, we are going to have more and more draconian efforts to enforce the fiction that a "copy" of a song is a unit for sale.

Musicians should get paid - before they start playing. Not everytime someone new hears it.
