A longstanding complaint of the music industry is that MP3 has devalued the product: it's too easy to download for free and a generation of listeners has become accustomed to not paying for recorded music. If people won't pay for the music, the question is: will they pay for something else? And if so, what is that thing? During the annual general meeting of the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) in the summer, chairman Tony Wadsworth said: "We don't talk about this enough [but] we need to optimise sales from the declining physical formats. We can do this through innovative approaches with packaging, pricing, retail support and direct-to consumer initiatives".
