    Total cost

    EB is charging $1,395.00 USD for the final hardcover edition. I think that was about the normal cost? Which is and always has been quite outrageous.

    But for many, many years there were no alternatives and that was what the market -schools and libraries- would bear.

    So it would be safe to say they really milked that cash cow for all it was worth for a very long time.

    The online version is posted as "$69.95 for your first year and renew after that year at the then-current rate annually."

    So not a bad deal, really, but perhaps the 'then-current rate' will be much higher?

    What we should do is that anyone who has ever bought an album, single, cd or mp3 should contact the RIAA and ask them to prove whether or not the royalty payment -included in the price of EACH item purchased, ever- has been passed on to the artist.

    We have already paid this money. Someone has kept most of it.

    RIAA are the people who have failed to pass on this money, all the while pretending that they are protecting the very same artists from copyright infringement.
