That's a big problem here as well. Both the internet and the low dollar exchange rate. I notice it a lot in record shops in Holland too. They're focussing more and more on the safe stuff (DVDs and also music from the bigger labels) or specialise in vinyl. The sad thing is that I'm actively helping to achieve this... but the difference between 20 euros or 10-12 dollars plus another 3-4 for shipping is just too tempting a lot of the time.
