Actually typically it isn't the actual artist complaining, it's the ******* greedy recording studios that snatch up all the money. Most bands don't make a whole lot of money compared to their producers, so the producers are the ones bitching about the ******* pirating.

It really depends on who funded the album and for how much. Usually what happens is that a record company will give a band a certain amount of money as an advance so that they can record the album. The reason why they make most of the money is because the sales are essentially paying them back. Now if the band came up with the funds to record the album, like some are doing today with kickstarter/indiegogo/ect, then all the record company would have to do is distribute it. The record companies actually prefer this way as they don't have to loan out a huge sum of money with potentially no return (around $100,000). The bands of course prefer it as well because then they get a bigger cut of the profits. Being a musician myself, I'm grateful for sites like kickstarter/indiegogo as it takes a huge load off if you have enough fans, and to sites like bandcamp which are good for distributing your own music and building up a fanbase. I work as an intern for Prosthetic Records so I see all sorts of deals made with bands and the company and most of the bands are pretty happy with Prosthetic.

And what of the upcoming artist who wants to make a career out of music? They have an apartment and work at a fast food place as they try to get a recording contract that few studios are willing to chance because most people will just download their music if they want it. You have to live as well, and illegal downloading has probably stopped alot of promising careers.

Because two people couldn't possible share the same opinion can they? You ******* idiot. Also "up and coming" artists aren't going to make money until they get a deal with a label and when people are pirating your music there is a larger chance of a label hearing you and wanting to sign you.

You are wrong and stupid, i have just explained to you why you are wrong and stupid now please sort your head out.

Woah, woah, please calm down. It's just a comment on the internet. I didn't think about his much longer than it took to comment, and after I walk away from the computer I don't even care anymore. I'm sorry I wasted your time, for the record I just get annoyed by all the stupid quotation posts that people use to validate themselves.

"A famous guy said it, so it must be true," is a terrible post on a site for funny pictures.

I will not be responding anymore on this thread, so how about we live it at this.

Who the **** is pirating "up-and-coming" artists? And no, it's not a fear of taking a chance just to have it copied that keeps companies from signing these people -- It's knowledge of what sells in the industry. The reason all the famous bands/singers/etc. are famous, is because their record label knew they could sell.
Don't blame pirating for your imaginary garage band never taking off. It didn't take off because you weren't impressive enough, if you even had the determination to send out your demo that you probably never made.

The only way for their music to get noticed has been the same as always. Get noticed At local shows and on local radio stations.

people are generally more likely to support that artist for a few reasons.
1. lack of good quality torrents
2. no seeders

but in seriousness I'd rather pirate and donate directly to the artist than fork out another 20 bucks for an album so some record company and producer can get rich.

Little-known artists who are focused on making money are little-known for a reason. Don't you wonder why most indie artists would kill to be featured on The Pirate Bay's front page? Speaking form experience, it is much more important to get your name out there before you try to make money.

I usually Download what i listen to, since a lot of it is from semi mainstream moneybag producers. When I find a good artist thats fairly unknown though, I will send them ungodly sums of money for their discographies. Seems fair-ish to me.

Yeah, but then you get independent bands that use their life savings to pay for recording sessions and production. They try to sell their albums at their concerts just to get by and have enough money to keep touring. They just wanna make a living out of doing something they love, then some jerk uploads the album on some website, people start downloading it, stop buying the album at the concerts, band doesn't make enough money to keep touring any more, has to call off the rest of the tour.

Some people should seriously spend at least 2 week touring with some independent band to see what really goes on behind the scene. People here act as if every musician is just loaded with money and that's just not true.
While downloads might help get your name out there, it ends up hurting more than helping.

I think this is specifically talking about the big, famous, successful bands that already have more money than they'll ever need. The simple truth is that an item's worth is based on its quality and its scarcity. No matter how much time, energy, and money is put into any kind of file or program and no matter how high its quality, the fact that it can be easily duplicated millions of times over makes the actual product practically worthless. It's too late now, but maybe, for the good of the people making them, things like music, movies, and games should have stayed as services rather than products.

youtube. then they get ad revenue from all the idiots too stupid to be using adblock.

seriously, who torrents music anymore? you can just get any music you want off of youtube and for free, so it's still a win for everyone.

You ever consider some of us don't use adblock because we like the websites we visit and want them to have enough revenue to continue existing? Seriously if all us "idiots" started using adblock half the sites out there wouldn't be able to fund themselves anymore or would institute a membership fee.

Adblock doesn't block the advertisement from appearing on the page, it just basically blanks it out to the viewers computer. When the advertisement is loaded on a page, it can't see that someone has adblock, so it acts like it is being displayed, so therefore it doesn't effect revenue at all for anyone to have adblock. So your point is, in fact, invalid.

No it isn't. Many ads are pay per click. That means the advertiser only pays for the ad if someone CLICKS on it. Not to mention even if the ad is only pay per impression, those with adblock will never click on it regardless driving down the click-through-rate on the ad an discouraging the advertisers from using that given site.

Well the people with adblock aren't going to click an advertisement anyways, so again, it doesn't effect anything.
