Don't know if its been discussed here, but the RIAA keep on going on about the sales of albums have slumped and all that.
Well, did they stop and think how much of an impact auction sites are having on their sales? Ebay for example. I mean, there is SOOOOOOOOOOOO manynearly new albums being sold on auction, and a particular album may be put back on ebay several times, from different buyers. People may buy them to copy them and then sell them on.
Maybe that has put a dramatic affect to their sales. Not as big as P2P networks of course, but it would still count surely?
Any thoughts on that?
