Wait, you mean we can’t keep selling the same music over and over anymore?

A Bloomberg article reports record company executives are finally realizing what normal human beings already know: the step from CD to mp3 isn’t just another format bump that requires consumers to purchase The White Album all over again. Many people, instead of rebuying their music collection through iTunes (or whatever), are simply (and legally) converting their CDs into mp3s and transfering them to their iPods (or whatever). Gasp!

Of course, rather than focus on producing quality new content, media companies would rather break our televisions (and related devices), which is roughly analogous to intentionally tripping the girl you have a crush on.
