Legal Practically before the trial is up and running, The Pirate Bay has achieved a major victory over the entertainment industry. On day two, the prosecutor has dropped half of the charges against the bittorrent website. The remaining charges are much lighter than the ones that have been dropped.

What does a Business need to provide do be successful?

Simple: A product which offers a better price/value ratio than all other players in the market.

Let's compare pirated vs. legal downloadable music:

Pirated comes for free, legal costs a lot
Pirated comes unrestricted, legal is locked into DRM
Pirated might bring you in trouble, legal won't

The key to make more money, would be to increase the product value and reduce the price:
1) Reduce the price by 50%.
2) Provide just plain mp3, no DRM files.
3) Provide high bandwidth.
