This type of distribution could drive big crowds to their concerts where the
_big money_ (for bands, not media moguls) is made. Unlike CDs, torrents are
free (paid for by the listener, which makes payments to ISP). The music itself
is thus only burdened by bandwidth costs.
No middlemen. We have the Internet. The middleman is obsolete.
Very disruptive. Very good for the customers and very good for the bands. For
Robbing Barons -- not so much.
