    So I read an article a while ago that all the major labels lost a court case on price fixing and colusion and were mandated by the courts to significantly lower their prices.
    So I haven't seen prices lower around here!
    The labels always bitch about downloading; funny they never talk about pricefixing?!?!?!

    Grant, a lawyer from nearby Maryville, Tn. won a class action suit against them for price-fixing about 5 years ago. Everybody got a check for about $10 and the beat goes on.... No price reductions in sight yet! Payola goes hand in hand with price-fixing too, if you ask me. Best wishes!

    yeah it's amazing how they can still blame things like downloading on lowered cd sales; not artifically highrecord price fixing
    So hows the new pad?

    Grant, the drywall is going up soon, as soon as the wiring is inspected. Supposedly, I move in 1 November. Have you been watching reruns of the Simpsons? Best wishes!
