I READ that Sherman Networks (whatever, the guys who made Kazaa) says the fluctuation is nothing to worry about, rates are constantly changing and the up-and-down usage scale is always tipping back and forth. BTW, another point on something Fleshy said, the RIAA can't set prices for CDs. Sure, they could get the producers of CDs to sell the discs to retailers at lower costs, but they cannot themselves set prices. It would be a violation of anti-trust laws and such, plus what's to stop retailers from just marking the CDs up?
