Let's try to keep the exaggerations under control. The main reason the record business went downhill is because they failed to adapt their outdated business model quickly enough to the public's changing preferred method of buying and listening to music. The majority of people no longer want to pay $19 for an album of songs on a plastic disc when they only want a couple of the songs on it and in digital format. Companies started getting the message, they started making the music legitimately available in this format, people are paying for it, and companies are making money from it.
