I learned the truth at 17

Oh, wow. I grew up listening to Janis Ian. And now here she is talking about MP3s. Freaky.

I'm glad someone is finally saying this: MP3 is the new radio. Since radio has become so over-commercialized, artists had to go somewhere to connect with listeners in a free and easy way. The internet is just the place, and p2p makes it easy. Anyone who's ever discovered a new favorite musician from an MP3 knows that file trading creates CD sales. It's cool that Janis Ian is talking about it, too. The more the artists talk back to the RIAA, the more likely they'll get the message.
