When the word "business" is used it means one's responsibility is to make 
money. Everybody would like to spend more, often it's just not in the cards. 
Mind you, this is different than ripping people off. If you are making money so 
should all those people whose labor and art are contributing to your success.
And better recordings aren't always the answer. I'm working on an academic 
project that uses a very large number of video clips of primates, mostly 
provided by field researchers who have no training in any kind of field 
recording. The videos are often of very rare animals but the audio is 
unacceptable for any number of reasons. In these cases retaining the original 
audio is impossible, adding generic "jungle sounds" would be a serious 
misrepresentation, authentic audio for that locality is nonexistent, and 
silence stands out like a sore thumb. My solution of last resort is to add a 
little gentle wind in trees.
