Elasticity, Microeconomics

not that long ago we experienced the excitement of thinking we would have cheaper online books and free music. these visions that we had of a free market utopia that blinded us to the fact there were immutable facts about economics and one of the standards is price elasticity, unfortunately some dwell on the potential still. Those early days of e-books held the much promise for such a short time. E-goods are returning to the price levels which we thought they had left behind, again the inevitable price elasticity. The question I have is this...why is it so certain that price elasticity will cause those prices to return to levels they were at instead of staying lower based on the new technology?
