So let me get this right ...
- the labels want to charge much the same retail price per single or album delivered electronically as they do delivered physically
- they want the retailer to earn less per sale delivered electronically
- they want the artist to earn less per sale
- they have fewer costs
BUT
- they are :not: greedy ...

Yup - that sounds reasonable.

(yes - they MUST maximise earnings for their owners - but this sounds like monopoloitic or oligopolistic behaviour - "gouging" - to me)
