I do agree with you completely.
However they will answer you that authors of IP invited them.
And it's true.
But in this case i can answer that IP authors are in fact interested
to invite consumers to buy IP and they are not interested directly in
digital media industry - authors would agree to allow people burn CDs
themselves if people pay money for IP.
One writer complained to me that it costs alot for him to maintain internet
side (The readers use my bandwidth and it costs money for me). My answer
was to allow people to put his book on their sites. The only problem
is that noone can garantee money will be paid
