Thanks Dave

9'! think it' s a good idea becaused
it' s people trading music. ',
It has nothing to do with industry or finalle' e,
it' s just people that want music
and there' s nothing wrong with that.
It' s the same as someone turning on c... -'"' g
the f* ckin radio, it' s the same as somethi/ e'
patti a cassette in a ciro' Betty" deck
when the BBC plays a special ,
I don' t think it' s ; been going on
for -years. --' s the sachet as people making
tapes for each other. the industry is more
threatened by it because it' s the worldwide
web and it' s a broader scope of trading,
but I don' t think its such a f* ckin horrible
thing, The first thing we should do is get
all the f* ckin millionaires to shut their mouths,
and stop bitching about the
25 cents a time they' re losing."
Dave Grohl

It's so cute how pirates think that it's a just cause to pirate... Stop trying to justify it. There's only one solution: Artists need to go indie and sell their music cheap. Cut out the middleman. Stop trying to tell yourself what you're doing is fair. it isn't.

We had so many artists who wanted nothing more than to have their music heard.

Right now we've got so many who lost that same exact one goal they had when they began.

That's what happens when you sell your soul to the music industry.

I think this song sums up the music industry nowadays.
"Ah, Justin Bieber, welcome to soul shtack records....So, I hear you'd like to be a star. Well the price of fame is not cheap. I hope you've got what it takes.

But all we want is your Soouuuullll

Give it to me!

Aha haha hha!!!!"

You ever watch class of 3000?

look at it in the perspective of it i went and saw a diamond, and had a way to copy and make that diamond, only for myself, but with the original diamond not being touched. is that realy stealing if its sill there?
User avatar #10 to #8 - mydogizmexican (01/17/2013) [-]
Not at all
#11 to #10 - jakeattack (01/17/2013) [-]
exactly, so when i download a file, im not realy stealing it. the problem is, what i said is obviously not possible in the real world, but is in the internet world. but our ideas of morality come from the real one, so its hard to apply them to the internet.
User avatar #12 to #11 - mydogizmexican (01/17/2013) [-]
Technically it is, you just have to put some coal under pressure for a 'bit' and you get a diamond
#13 to #12 - jakeattack (01/17/2013) [-]
no i mean i cant just look at something and copy it from nothing. but i can with the internet
User avatar #14 to #13 - mydogizmexican (01/17/2013) [-]
And with the internet, the item techically, is just a line of code thats been given meaning
#15 to #14 - jakeattack (01/17/2013) [-]
exactly. so i can just copy those ones and zeros. thats it
User avatar #16 to #15 - mydogizmexican (01/17/2013) [-]
Its like words. Its just a noise until we give it meaning

A rich person who finally gets it, a person can live comfortably off of 100,000 dollars a year, yet all of these huge businessmen and conglomerates make billions of dollars a year while they cut their employees salaries and fire them. I applaud you Dave Grohl.

Good ******* lord you guys.

Sure Pirating is just copying, and everyone does it.
But don't say its not stealing, what a joke.

comes from a person who has a ******** of money
#3 to #2 - mollike (01/16/2013) [-]
How is that a bad thing? As I see it he is not phased that he loses some money by pirating.
#4 to #3 - sexynippleguy (01/16/2013) [-]
well, i think if he wouldnt have lots of money he wouldnt be happy that people just pirated his music, and when he doesnt have money he cant give concerts and record new songs.

sorry for the poor english
#5 to #4 - mollike (01/16/2013) [-]
That's why lot of people buy albums of less known band even if they have already pirated their music to support them to make more good music.
#6 to #5 - sexynippleguy (01/16/2013) [-]
jups, and its is fun to have a album for the album art and awesome quality

What would happen if instead of copying music files you were copying dollar bills?
User avatar #18 to #17 - BlahDude ONLINE (01/17/2013) [-]
then...we'd be copying dollar bills...I don't see your point...
User avatar #19 to #18 - churrundo (01/17/2013) [-]
The value of the dollar drops...
User avatar #20 to #19 - BlahDude ONLINE (01/17/2013) [-]
Thing is, the value of a song DOESN'T drop if it gets copied

Because I may download a whole bunch of songs, and copy them for my friends, we're still gonna enjoy the song the same as if we bought them

Plus we're still gonna be willing to pay to see the song live, something you can't really pirate
User avatar #24 to #20 - jakelguy (01/17/2013) [-]
hes got a semi point. The more people that download it the less demand there will be, which devalues it in a way.
User avatar #21 to #20 - churrundo (01/17/2013) [-]
Economical value is the one that counts, not the sentimental value. It used to cost, say, 1 dollar, now it costs nothing to get it. Its value dropped.

This makes the music you like (the one you download) not worth producing, leaving the record companies with the only option of funding the music that will bring money in, like Justin Beiber and Nicki Minaj.

The problem is that the people that buy more music are the teenagers with a " ****** " taste on music, while the adults don't have time for that.
#28 to #21 - thematthaslem (01/17/2013) [-]
Yet all the rich ******* that already have music being produced are usually the ones that bitch about pirating music.
User avatar #25 to #21 - kingnarnode (01/17/2013) [-]
see the flaw in your logic is that fans still buy cd's, buy merchandise, and pay to go to concerts. The value hasn't dropped at all, more people now can just acquire copies of it illegally, which in reality doesn't affect things all too badly since they aren't physical copies, rather they are digital. If music that was pirated was "not worth producing" as you put it, then it wouldn't be produced.
User avatar #29 to #25 - churrundo (01/17/2013) [-]
Flaw in your logic is that af all the people that hear the song, only a few fans buy it, buy the merchandise and go to the concerts. Yes, they are the fans, but there are people that just download it because it's free and it fills their ipods.
User avatar #31 to #29 - kingnarnode (01/17/2013) [-]
I know not everyone buys the song, but I'm having a hard time seeing where you're trying to go with this
User avatar #34 to #31 - churrundo (01/17/2013) [-]
i guess if music was a completely pure art where you don't expect anything for your expression (like that graffitti post said a few days ago) then it would be ok to acquire it for free. But it's not. You are supposed to make a sacrifice for that acquisition, and you aren't supposed make a new product (by copying a file) because the only one that is allowed to create that file is the record company. By copying it you are creating a new one, out of the will of the artist (and the record company, by extension).
Did I get my point across?

it's easy to say this when you're already famous, and you're making money.

try telling this to a musician who's just started getting his name out there. I guarantee he'll have a different perspective.
User avatar #38 - xXMAQXx (01/17/2013) [-]
when did he say this? was it recently? i just want to know
User avatar #37 - jajathezombie (01/17/2013) [-]
If it's not a popular artist, I'll pay for the song. Otherwise I'll steal the **** out of music. Popular artists get plenty of money from kids who don't know how to pirate yet or old people who never figured it out, not to mention the fact that most top-selling artists tend to charge ridiculous prices for their concerts.
User avatar #36 - rossthomson (01/17/2013) [-]
I think that people who could afford to buy music, shouldn't download music illegally. And that you should only buy music from the artists that could use the extra money the most, like the non-mainstream artists. I have a couple friends in bands/making electronic music, and the couple extra people who buy their music off bandcamp/itunes, really help them towards getting new equipment. Especially on bandcamp, the more people buy your song, it gets put on the main page and gets the artist more publicity, I don't really think that i could live in a society where illegally downloading a song, is considered more normal than buying a song that someone worked so hard on.

Who actually pirates the music that is making money? I see no point in stealing any music by Nikki Minaj. Or owning music by that thing.   
or it making music
