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.

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.

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.

So, you have your album worth about $15 right?
Now, you have **** heads like me who don't pay for **** unless we know it's gonna be worthwhile. So what the likely thousands more people like me Illegally download a few albums, and go " **** , these guys are good, I think I'll go to a concert of theirs!".
>Buy $100 ticket after downloading about $50 worth of music
Do moar concerts, make moar money

The respect given to Streetlight Manifesto for boycotting their own record label and telling you to download their music illegally because all they want is you to listen to their music.

I don't really like this arguement.

"Since we have a lot of money we should be ok with losing some"?

Yea its great to know people like your song but if you're losing money left and right due to pirating, thats gonna take a heavy toll on your success.

Pirating is wrong! It's stealing!

I'm just ******* with you. Sure, it can hurt independent or indie artists and such but on the flip side, those who are already rich are fine.

Also, pirating can actually increase sales for independent or indies. I recall a story in the publishing world about the huge boost in sales a person's novel got after it was put up for pirate.

Two sides of a coin, and I think it balances out well enough.

you cant really make a living off producing music... its in the same boat as modern day painters. Do people give a **** about their paintings? No.

And to be honest, i never bought a song in my life and probably never will.

Its not really my fault, the radio and internet are advertising these songs like free candy. Its almost impossible to not listen to them, why should i have to pay for something that i hear everyday on the radio or youtube?

I think most people are still living in the 80s where music was still played on those huge black CDs. Now those, they were much harder to get for free. It was easier to just buy the CD and have the music forever.

Nowadays, music is virtually bought and if your computer takes a **** on you, you lose all your music. Plus downloading music for free is much quicker and faster, plus its free. I wouldnt mind buying it if it was only 4 clicks away, but its not. Paypal **** and credit cards, aint nobody got time for that.

What im saying is,
technology has changed, and thus music adapted to it.

"Huge black CDs"
"never bought a song in my life"
"hear everyday on the radio or youtube"

I feel sorry for you.

The problem is, that if everyone is like "oh well if this guy says pirating is okay, then i should pirate" and then more and more people will, until only the people who upload will be paying. And then what? ******* NOTHING THATS WHAT, LITERALLY, NOTHING!

Phil Bozeman (vocalist of Whitechapel) explained it pretty well in one of his Q&A videos. Musicians don't like it because when you download it for free instead of buying it, they make no money on it, and then have to tour more to make money, which keeps them away from their loved ones. I know it doesn't really apply to really big bands/artists, but it definitely applies to the smaller bands.
