Demand and supply.

A) there's 1 person in a 1000 who can make amazing music - but 999 who can make paperwork;
B) this 1 person makes 1 song that sells to 16 million people;
Then: that person granted his right for his big money.

Polaris: "And what is a guitar doing in the middle of an asteroïd anyway?"
sgk: Think of it this way: it's like a message in a bottle. In our world, we put a message inside a bottle to protect it while it travels through the oceans to reach some other island. In other worlds, they put a message inside an asteroid to protect it while it travels through space to reach some other planet. In this case it is a gift, a guitar, rather than just a message.
