Hm, I was wondering about this for a while now. The music industry's all about illegal music downloading harming the sales/market/etc. After pondering about it, I don't really think that's the only truth why people buy less CDs now.

Right, did you read that? CD!
Have you ever given one thought about the format CD? In an age of flexibility and especially mobility, most people own an iPod or other mp3-Players. Now, let's see... mp3 and CD? That's not compatible at all. CDs are simply too bulky. And portable CD-players? Don't make me laugh... People want their portable devices to be small but still effective with as many functions as possible. The format CD is outdated, old-fashioned, and definitely not attractive anymore. (And if people actually want something old-fashioned/retro-style, they'll buy vinyl...) That's one of the main reasons why I don't buy (m)any CD albums anymore.

Therefore, my suggestion is inventing a smaller format; still a disc like a CD but able to be put into a small portable music device that can play both manually put-in mp3s but also that mini-disc. Wouldn't that be a perfect match? I mean, music artists still get to sell their "CDs" (with copy protection if necessary) and people can happily make their own compilations with mp3s 'cause I don't think downloading music will ever cease as long as the internet exists.
