Entertainers, much like the publishing industry, are facing a much more tough environment for making profit in an age where it's easier (and often cheaper) for consumers to get their kicks online. We've previously seen the literary world respond with ideas such as Total BooX — the Israeli startup that charges readers by the page, rather than for entire titles.
