The entertainment industry is built upon the idea of restricting, controlling and selling access to something that it never had right to.

“Stars” might sign contracts because they want wealth and fame. Musicians, Artists and Actors will express themselves because they must. Some fine musicians have day jobs.

The internet, and free software have provided artists a means by which they can disseminate their work cheeply, free of the controls which have been imposed on them over the last 60 years or so.

Musicians with day jobs are finding an audience the other side of the world.

DRM as with any attempt at social control will fail.
Any form of art is human expression and you cannot commodetize it.
