It's funny, but when a normal business finds the market changing on them, they tend to realize they need to change as well. That doesn't seem to happen with any company somehow related to the entertainment industry. The market around them changes, and they just stand still, while yelling and screaming - and blaming everyone else. The latest to play the blame game is Wherehouse Music, who is filing for bankruptcy (again), while blaming all those evil music downloaders. Give me a break. This is the same company that just came out of bankruptcy protection a few years ago and changed almost nothing in their stores to keep up with the times. Also, considering a large percentage of their business is DVD sales - a market that has been growing tremendously over the past couple of years, it seems a bit disingenuous to blame it all on music downloaders.
