Yannick, the GeneralEclectic

The point where the similarities of selling CDs and selling porn DVDs ends is that the structure of hit songs or hit bundles is very elaborate when compared to what is called the highlight of porn movies, the zooming in on the actors' parts. The latter can be done much more easily by willing amateurs than playing music. So that suggests the porn industry faces even tougher times than the record industry. And nobody wants bad porn when they could have a lovely girlfriend.

When you talk about something like "attention economy", please consider the fact that the ads sponsoring ad-supported music do take away attention from the music, because listeners don't get more time off from work when they listen to ad-supported music whereas they used to pay for music with their hard-earned that they get from working hours.
