Napster Killed My Record Store

Napster Killed My Record Store: (link pirated from My Science Project, who will no doubt be pleased with the eels/Mogwai result). Anyway, a record store blames Napster for plummeting sales. As I’ve said before, my own purchasing habits have changed only in focus, not quantity, since I got the MP3 habit. But then I try to use MP3s in a half-assed ‘ethical’ manner anyway.

I do think record shops, particularly small ones, will be hit badly by the change in technology – I think they’ll suffer more than artists, and I’m sadder about that too. What can be done? Almost precisely nothing.
