I read that U2 made something like $700 million from their "U2 360" tour alone, I'm pretty sure they'll survive if people pirate their music

yes, support their families
i suppose that makes it okay to sue an 8 year old girl for more money then her, her parents, and her children will make in their entire lives
because their 16 year old kid needs a 7th car, i mean, **** , you expect him to drive one of them twice in the same week?

iPod that can hold 40,000 songs: $250
price per song(cd or direct download): over 50 cents
total cost to fill iPod 1/10 of the way: $5,000
amount of that that goes to the artist: under 20%
amount of artists who give a **** if you dl: under 10%
amount who have the right to let you: under 0.5%
amount of work RIAA actually does: under 0.2%
amount of money they make: more then the total salaries of a football stadium full of people

they just want to support their families, they have hearts of gold, just working hard to make a living.

What if he acts so care-free about profit so he gets sympathy and guilts people into buying his music?
User avatar #134 - cattiestcss (03/15/2012) [-]
I downloaded because of two reasons
1.) I enjoy his music
2.) He looks like Frodo Baggins

It could be said that the typical band actually loses money by fussing so much about piracy.

This guy will get more fans because he is making his music accessible to more people. Those people will pay for concerts, albums, and merchandise in the future.
If he had been a dick about making sure everyone paid for his music, no one would know who he is and he would have no chance of getting anywhere.

The increased publicity and exposure from making your music available like this is far more valuable than a few record sales.

When I first saw this I thought the guy looked like Syd Barret from Pink Floyd. Then I saw his last name and I shat bricks of how close they were. Pic Related.
