Chinese Piracy

  1. What's worse, chinese piracy or the 30 million american kids who walk around with ipods filled with pirated music.

    Maybe it's innate quality in humans to pirate software, and intellectual property. It seems that it is a cross-cultural trait.

    I have the answer to this. What is worse are the prices charged for music in the US. I like how the recording industry is trying to sell CDs in China for $2 in order to make piracy less attractive. If they deem that economically viable, that sort of tells you something about their markup in the US. The recording industry's price point is the problem here.
