What about me? I download songs to see if I like them. If I like a couple off the same album I'll go and buy the CD. Do you disagree with that too? What about the fact that the CD I buy cannot (well, officially) be copied, so if it breaks I have to buy a new one? Or how about if I were to buy it legally but with DRM on it that prevented me from playing it on more than two devices? Do I own or rent the music I buy? Until the record industry wise up to fair practice I'm on the side of the pirates.

So liking ABBA means knowing nothing about music? You, Sir, are the one showing ignorance.

remember when you could record your own music from the radio and let your friends listen to it all day long? There were no concerns of legal right to play it. The labels didn't give you shit unless you were selling it for profit. Why? Well basically people copying and playing music they got free is also a great form of free advertising. We would make mixed tapes and share them with friends. Most of my favorite bands I found the first time from mixed tapes from friends. Now we have the controlled list of approved artists that the labels want to force on us. They are trying to control what we buy and they are keeping us from choosing ourselves what we like. They are just hurting the artists that are struggling everyday. If you ask me, the artists should stop running on the labels band wagons and allow their stuff to get out there to the people by producing it them selves. People will take care of you if your good enough.

Funny comments. I like the 'put up or shut up' message you people give the whiners. So the poor fellows think that the war riaa is waging against the pirates of the world will be won? I got news for you folks, the best coders, the best hackers, the most savvy computer people are anarchists. They dont give a crap in you, your rights, your government, the company behind your back and will do anything to fight you, pirate your stuff and generally give you the finger. As long as riaa refuse to evolve with the times, they will lose. Riaa is an unneccessary 3rd part in the whole deal anyway. They are losing power each day and is grasping at straws. Anyone with half a brain can see that. Oh, and yes, get a real job if you dont like the situation. We all have had to give up on dreams like that one time or another. Getting paid to loaf around most of the time, make a fool out of yourself in popular media and make music for a living isnt a right, its a privilege.

This is a thread I can identify with. My brother was in the music industry before an accident wrecked his vocal chords. He made 2 Albums, with a total distribution of about 10,000. Our take is this: Distribute the music, in a decent (raidio) quality for download on MP3 format. people who truly enjoy the music, will purchase the CD, or go to a concert to see you. We believe it's no different than going to the library to read a book, then buying the book for your collection if you enjoy it. I've borrowed many dvd's, CD's and books from different venues, then gone out and purchased the ones I enjoyed the most for my private collection.I've bought the entire Xanth series twice over, multiple copies of bands Cd's I've enjoyed, and Copies of DVD collections, even after I've seen them on TV.To the artists that are working to make a name for themselves, Free distribution via Radio, TV and other venues do not harm them financially, if anything, it helps keep their music alive, and may bring new fans to the table. If anything, distribution of music, books and video only helps to INCREASE interest in whatever is being traded. Granted, some intellectual properties shouldn't be done this way... Games, Software ect... but TV shows, MUsic, and books in my mind should be made available for download. Not too many people will go out and buy quake or duke nuken 3d as a new copy, it's just not financially sound. So, if you can't find what you're looking for, download it, listen to it (or read or watch) what you will, then go and purchase the collectible version of the item you're looking for. Perhaps they can setup a free download which times out after so many uses, or sets up a nag to purchase the item like shareware does. I've no problem paying for what I want butprefer to make sure that the software is useful to me, or that I enjoy the band, like the movie enough to want to buy it. IMHO

Wow what is America coming to? People are way to sue happy. I hope this woman doesn't win money, especially her asking price for that is simply ridiculous. If she gives 4.8 million to charity then fine I'm ok with it. This is a joke, and well the RIAA needs to worry about bigger fish.
