Defined Through Its Effect

"Entertainment -- the cause -- is thus inversely defined through its effect: a satisfied and happy psychological state. Yet, somehow, it matters not whether the effect is achieved through active or passive means. Playing the piano can be just as pleasurable as playing the stereo." 
- Harold L. Vogel, Entertainment Industry Economics

Even when viewed through the cold lens of economics, it's about the audience.
