Distribution used to carry a hefty cost. Now any moron with a $50 microphone and a laptop can record, master, and distribute his own music. If you're using digital production (Modplug Tracker), you don't even need special equipment like instruments. Why should the music industry represent the same revenue per unit shipped as it has in the past? If it did that, it would represent literally dozens of times the profit.

You try that, as a musician (even if you get 100%) you would be extremely lucky to get you $50 back.
I costs are LOT more than that to make any music and you don't get paid a cent when writing, producing and mastering.
