Billboard poll: 99 cent downloads too expensive

A single song download is too expensive at 99 cents, according to a Billboard.com poll. Of 9,034 voters, 61% said the price at digital music outlets such as Apple’s iTunes is too much. “The largest group, 32%, said 99 cents was simply too much for just one song. Another 29% preferred a less legal approach, agreeing with the statement ‘Why pay for it when I can download it elsewhere online for free?’ On the other hand, of the 39% who are in favor of the sub-$1 price structure, 22% felt 99 cents was OK if the quality and selection of the service offering the tracks is good.”
