That's true...Even I know quite a few artists who have to pick a secondary career and they are no less talented than the superstars backed by effective PR.
If I look at it from this angle I do feel that if the record companies did not have the lure of a copyright they might have been more inclined to bring all sorts of talent to fore rather than invest in PR stunts and promote one artist over another.
I will admit though I am still conflicted - perhaps need to read more like @rysiek
