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."

What would happen if instead of copying music files you were copying dollar bills?

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

hes got a semi point. The more people that download it the less demand there will be, which devalues it in a way.

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.

Yet all the rich ******* that already have music being produced are usually the ones that bitch about pirating music.

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.

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.

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?

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
sssssssouuuuullllll

Give it to me!

Aha haha hha!!!!"

But don't say its not stealing, what a joke.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
