If a band MP3s it’s own album, it’s still 100% the result of the label that the music got heard.

The only artists who have music released on MP3 only without label help are people recording stuff in their own garage.

Now, extrapolate this for a second. If this is how music is going to be run, we have a sad state of affairs in 20 years. We are going to miss out on so much if already financially strapped music lines are further depreciated sales-wise by MP3 stealing.
