3. Well, So Has Much of Web 2.0 & File Sharing
Now it's turned out that people who chose career paths for creative fulfillment, albeit with lesser pay, aren't going to be allowed a career at all.

4. You Can Scream About Record Labels and Publishers All You Want
But at least with those entities, artists get a choice about who to work with to get their work distributed.
