Can someone answer me this?
Can someone answer me this?

So I just read someone's opinion on buying music and it got me thinking. Ok, so yes a lot of people will download music for free and not think twice about it. But, when a new movie comes out to theaters people jump at the chance to see said movie. The cost of seeing a movie at a movie theatre these days is anywhere from $7-10. So why not skip out on seeing that movie right away and instead, buy a cd from a band that you downloaded their stuff for free. No one ever thinks twice about dropping cash to go see a movie when it costs around the same as buying a cd does. Yet most no longer want to pay to buy the music they listen to. Going to see a movie only lasts for however long the movie is but spending the same amount on an album will last you however long you want it to. I'm not saying don't go to the movies or anything like that because that would just be silly. It just bugs me that people will download free music all day and then go spend money that could have used to buy one album on something like going to see a movie, which nowadays is overpriced anyways. I know I haven't really gotten to my question yet, just me talking. Question is, why do you think people have no problem spending almost $10 to see a movie but will not the music they listen to?
