Why do people think that digital files are never re-copied? If I have a valuable file, I keep it on magnetic media (disk and/or tape) as well as optical (CD/DVD), and I make backup copies of the disk drive, as well as making periodically making new copies of the CD/DVD's. I don't just make one copy and let it sit on a shelf until the rats chew holes in it.
Are businesses and governments keeping everything on paper, or are they keeping multiple digital copies?
These arguments against digital media are getting ridiculous.
What I said was a direct response to a post, and specific to its claim.
And as has been said already, repeated re-copying is costly.
I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
