I had to deal with months of horrid marketing exposure for her here in NYC - at every turn was an frickin ad for her. She's a greedy marketing whore, to put it politely. And her music sucks.

I feel better now, thank you.

Tired of the "shoot the messenger" arguments. The quality of her music and her career are pretty irrelevant to this conversation. Her arguments are applicable to a wide range of people, whatever her real motivations were.

I am trying to understand how you can claim that music in CD or digital form can be reproduced for no cost?

There is cost involved when you record the original song or CD. If you own a recording studio, you pay for upkeep, electricity, a recording engineer, and employees. The equipment you use to reproduce the music is expensive and requires semi-frequent maintenance. This costs $$!!! If you do not own the studio, then you pay rent on the building and an hourly wage to the engineer, etc. Also, the blank CD's have to be purchased , and digital music uses bandwidth and storage space. There are costs associated with marketing and distribution as well.

He said reproduced. You're talking about initial costs of production. Not reproduction.
