(Eg musicians, designers etc) look back 15-30 years and look for
inspiration. It has happened before, it will happen again. The
leeching from chip music is not unique in this aspect. (Just about)
Every musical style is a progression from another, and everything
blends together in a ocmplex way. Everything either hits mainstream
sooner or later or dies in an obscure corner.

Destroying yourself by stopping your own creation in order to stop the
clones is just counter productive. Do you think for example that
hiphop producers will feel less of an appeal to chip sounds and other
raw synth sounds if we stop doing our thing.
No. Spread your own music and styles to counterfeit the mainstream.

STUPID" and "commercial fake". I think that the "commercially cloned"
music is actually softer and less noisy and nervous.

start to live until it is declared dead by its members". Just look at
the demoscene. It's alive and kicking, although its been declared dead
several times, and although it's different from what it was 10 or 20
