Thanks Dave!

9! think it' s a 'good idea
it' s people trading music. ‘If,
it has nothing to do with industry or finsih? e,
it' s just people that want music
and there' s nothing wrong with that.
It' s the same as someone turning on "r"''
the f* ckin radio, it' s the same as someone
patti a cassette in a "
when the BBC plays a special .
I don' t think it' s , -if' i; been going on
for the saint? 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 it' s 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 Chalie

I always say that the only people who actually care about piracy laws are rich ***** who live in ivory towers.

...says millionaire Dave Grohl... He can bitch all he wants about the music industry, but without them, he'd be a nobody, living on ramen, playing shows in dive bars.

And he loved that. He still looks on his time with Scream as some of the best years of his life. He's before acknowledged he wouldn't be so famous of the kids down the street didn't lend and copy their CDs. He did it. His fans do it.

Personally, I think piracy boosts sales, at least in my case.
I like to listen to full albums on youtube, then if I like them enough, I go out and buy them to listen in my car (no input, don't care to get a new radio)

As much as I agree that the music industry is greedy I don't think that gives us the right to pirate it. I'm probably going to get thumbed down a ton for this, but just because we don't think it's fair doesn't give us the right to break the law. To be honest even the musicians themselves can't legitimately tell us its ok in most cases because they need the record company in order to produce the record, thus the music belongs to the record company. Not saying its fair, but its how it is. Now if an artist produces the music on their own, say with their own small-time record company and they feel like giving it away, then by all means. Also, note I'm not saying this is the way it should stay, I think there should be reform, I just don't think we have the right to do so illegally because although you don't think they need more money, its not really your place to say.

I do pirate music from artists i generally have not heard at all, after listening to atleast two albums, I go out and buy their albums (ones that i already pirated) if the music is that good it will convince me enough to give them the money of the time i have spent listening to them

Dave Grohl is such a chill, down to earth guy.

For me, it depends what you do when you're pirating. I mean, if you download an album that you really like, but don't bother buying it or supporting the artist, then you're a dick. What I do, is download an album, listen to it, if I like it I'll buy it and buy some merchandise too. I'll go to shows if they're touring too.

I like to try before you buy. I don't like going on facebook or youtube to listen to one song. I like to listen to the album fully before deciding if I want to buy it or not. I've had so many instances where I've bought an album because I liked one song, and the rest of the album was just terrible. A lot of bands do tend to put the good songs up on facebook or whatever, and the rest are just album fillers.

I think its more important, as a musician myself, to get out there and get people listening to your stuff.

Says Dave Grohl, millionaire who no longer needs to worry about making ends meet with his music.   
The big-name bands are not the ones who are effected worst by this; it's the up-and-comers who don't have a pot to piss in.

You mean bands who absolutely love the idea of their songs getting out there and getting the band name recognition?
Them getting shared a lot is equivalent of young band getting on a major radio network.
Musicians and studios are not losing anything they haven't been losing since radio and 8-trax tapes appeared. But what they are gaining is massive brand recognition and widespread recognition. Mediocre band can now reach as many people as Beatles could at height of their popularity in the sixties.
And that **** sells t-shirts, fills concerts, gets sponsors and ultimately sells the music. Because if 2 billion people hear your music and only 1% decide to buy only 1 song. You've gone platinum.

Pirating hurts the record company. Not the artist.

The artists make next to nothing from an album sale. They make the vast majority of their money from live shows and concerts and stuff like that. If they're smart they won't give a **** about piracy, because it means that more people are listening to their music, which means more people are going to their shows.

Piracy does harm the record company, but who gives a **** about them? They're profiting from someone else's work. **** 'em, they should go out of business.

Well it's really not that simple. I am for free music, but it really isn't as clear cut as "It's the same as turning on the radio" and it isn't as clear as "Pirating ruins artist's lives" either. If there were an easy solution to the problem, someone would've already thought of it
