|it would be easy to make the mistake of thinking this issue is about compensation and ownership rights. but it is really a matter of quality and integrity. (see what I did there, with the play on words?) |
it is about being true to your vision and the art, and not selling out just so you can sell it. quality over quantity.
we don't have to reach or please everyone. as Joel Hodgson of MST3K said, and is oft repeated: "the right people will get this".

|Dang, man. This is one of those things that just drives me nuts. It's unfair on both sides. The Man is cheating the fans, so the fans are cheating the artist. Then with both sides cheating, both sides have to cheat harder. So you either pay nothing and give no support to the artist, or you pay wayyy too much and support the artist AND The Man. |
It's like the whole throwing the baby out with the bathwater thing, except the bathwater is really nasty and disgusting and poisonous and you seriously need to get rid of it but there's no way to separate it from the baby... and my analogy is crap.
Anyway, let me sum up: GRR!
I hope this doesn't have to happen to you, Jess.
