    That’s not how it works.
    Basically you’re asking for them to shutter their company; that’s ridiculous, noone would voluntarily do that.

    They are a company looking to make money off of their obsolete system technology; theyre going to hold on for dear life to their sinking ship. Which said sinking ship may takes years to finally go under.

    They sell ads to make money, and their promise to their customers is that they will put those ads in front of people.

    And so they do that. Year after year.

    The only way it will stop is when their customers no longer buy their product (ads.)

    The end.

    Economics 101 – you are 100% correct, however you miss the point that campaigns like the above can accelerate the decision of advertisers to stop using this archaic form. So maybe it will still take several years but perhaps we can quicken their demise by removing their funding sources.

    If we quietly discard their product it’s complacency about a waste of resources. True, their business model is dying, but we have no responsibility to artificially sustain it. A true entrepreneur adapts and moves forward. It’s a sad reality of the business world today, where nostalgia is only worth what one can sell it for.

    Interesting. I was just listening to something about this the other day on a radio program that I taped with my 8-track.
