Interesting Question Posited on Wired

This question has to do with COICA, or CLOACA, depending on who you talk to.  Actually, it had nothing to do with it.  It had to do with Hollywood.  The question he asked is this:

"Ever wonder why music costs the same regardless of the artist? Ever wonder why movies cost the same regardless of how popular or how much demand there is to see them? These industries certainly are not milk or gas. They are more like other commodities like clothing and cars where demand sets the price. So why are these items in the entertainment industry priced the same?
Could it be price fixing? Will Congress investigate whether these industries are involved in price fixing? Whether movie houses are pressured by Hollywood to charge the same price for every movie no matter if the movie stinks or is a blockbuster?
Funny how that works, isn’t it?"
-- by BenFlorida

Hmmm, could it be that Hollywood is actually running a cartel and fixing prices?  If so, then the Internet hurts them more than anything.  Could Copyright could have been perverted to support a Monopoly system than the artist?

Once a law is perverted by those it is supposed to protect, it can no longer function as a just and moral law.
