Reason #2887 why the music business hates its customers... · 11/27/2006 12:26 PM, Trivial

I stopped in an FYE the other day, which is a chain store mostly in malls selling a variety of media. In almost every place I looked in the store, I could get new DVD movies for $5-7… but every CD was $18 and up. Even the sale prices for music was never less then $9.99, while DVDs on sale could be from $12 or down.

I am sure there are many reasons that people can say around why this makes sense, from the different ways music and movies are viewed to licensed to produced to sold… but at the end of the day, when a movie goes from new at $20 to $12 within a year (30% decline), I expect music to follow a similar route. After all, the music CD didn’t cost $20 million to create, did it?
