Question

The NAB must have a pretty good lobby, too, because HD radio is going to be able to do digitally what the other media they are targeting does and it will be "free" already, ie. people won't be paying a premium for the service. They're just not there yet with the technology or number of users but when they are, you can bet conumers are going to want to be able to record straight off their radios and be able to pause and play back content. And that will be different than internet, satellite and cable why? Come to think of it, I can't record individual songs on Music Choice so what is the problem with cable exactly??

BTW what about the concept of using radio -- and subsequently internet, satellite and cable radio -- to prmote music and artists and actually sell CDs or downloads? I have heard a BUNCH of stuff on SIRIUS that I otherwise wouldn't have puchased must lest been aware of. Radio's playlists are so limited that you ONLY hear established or popular artists or those who the record companies are putting significant marketing dollars behind. Perhaps oversaturation is one reason the music industry is losing sales.

The thing that worries me the most if that if this goes through we will almost DEFINATELY see tiered pricing for different packages.

The reason: If you were Sirius (or XM), would you want to have to pay the RIAA for YOUR shows? It's basically a way for them to say Okay, your content is worth THIS MUCH to us. The other stuff on our service IS NOT CONTROLLED BY YOU. It basically allows them to put a price on THEIR services, so they're not paying the RIAA for Howard or Martha Stewart...

Please tell me someone else understands what I'm saying here...

Cost of a CD
A typical music fan who buys a CD might use that CD at home, take that CD in the car, make a tape of that CD, – or using it as part of a compilation, play that CD with friends and for friends, and keep that CD for many years. That’s probably why most consumers, when asked, describe CDs as a good value. At the same time, when asked directly whether CDs cost too much, some consumers will say yes! Why the contradiction? Because some consumers don't understand why the sales tag on a CD is so much higher than the cost of producing the actual physical disc, a cost, which in fact, has decreased over the years.
While the RIAA does not collect information on the specific costs that make up the price of a CD, there are many factors that go into the overall cost of a CD -- and the plastic it's pressed on, is among the least significant. CD manufacturing costs may be lower, but it takes more money than ever before to put out a new recording.
Of course, the most important component of a CD is the artist’s effort in developing that music. Artists spend a large portion of their creative energy on writing song lyrics and composing music or working with producers and A&R executives to find great songs from great writers. This task can take weeks, months, or even years. The creative ability of these artists to produce the music we love, combined with the time and energy they spend throughout that process is in itself priceless. But while the creative process is priceless, it must be compensated. Artists receive royalties on each recording, which vary according to their contract, and the songwriter gets royalties too. In addition, the label incurs additional costs in finding and signing new artists.
