    The “blogger” says: But Internet history proves the opposite is true. Any product that is more easily found online can be more easily sold.

    I say: While it’s true that it can be more “easily sold” that doesn’t mean that the copyright holder makes more money. Speak to any musician from the 60s, 70s, and 80s, who is no longer making new music or touring. Their residuals from music sales have gone down down and down. Frat boys are still playing the Steve Miller Band at parties; Steve Miller just isn’t getting any money for it.
