    16.What are your views towards the notion that music should be free? (please explain your answer)
    A musician is an artist creating a product. The real worth of a product to the musician should be in the live performance of that product in front of an appreciative audience. Recordings can be basically seen as commercials for the artists product.

    The record companies are the leeches who gain the most from the recorded material, and they need to be eradicated from the music business.

    The musician can still be paid for live performances, merchandising, and radio airtime.
