Your thoughts on the CD d/l and Burning

I dont find anything wrong with it. Most people dont want a whole CD and anyways they are too expensive. I think its wrong that the government is filing lawsuits again 12 year old I mean parents dont know everything that their child is doing online. Its pretty hard to feel sorry for music artist when a new episode of Cribs comes on. I know there a producers and other people who make the videos and song come true but i mean think about other people who have the pay 4x more on a regular cd rather than a burned one.

Well, I have about 10 copies of CD's that I have burned and, collectivley, they have cost me far less than 1 Cd from the record store. I am inclined to never, ever buy music from the store again if this "LawSuitMania" continues!

For some reason I can't download songs to my computer but with albums I sometimes buy them and keep them or buy them, upload the songs I like and take it back.

If people don't want customers making copies why is it so easy to do so?

....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

i read there was this guy who once sued the record companies for cheating us of our money for cds. (incidentally, the basis of his argument was that the prices for records went up when they swopped vinyl for cds because of higher production costs. but when the prices of production went down, the price of the cds still stood)

i think in the end they paid him to zip his mouth

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

...why wouldn't it be easy...?...you can't make sound copy protected...if you can hear it, you can record it...in fact they are trying to make it harder...ie copy protected CDs that (supposedly) don't play in computer CD drives and DRM...I'm not really sure why stealing music (or computer programs) is somehow considered more morally OK that any other kind of theft...especially when most of the music that gets copied would never get made if there wasn't money it...anyone else here go to work for free...?...so why do you expect people in the music industry or computer programmers to do that...?

O trust me, they make more than enough!!
The fact is that Cds are too expensive.

I can KIND OF ( ) symphatize with a music artist who is not popular and does not make a lot of money, but a lot of musicians make A LOT of money, as well as do producers... they rip us off, of course we are going to retaliate. CD prices have been rising because they thought they could rip us off...
as someone said, allez kazaa!!!!!

...I don't understand your logic...you're saying it's okay to steal from record companies and software firms because other people don't...?

willow, stop your fucking pseudo intellectual bullshit. icare2u's point is very clear.

cds are too expensive. lower the prices and people will happily purchase them, reducing the number of people burning and ripping cds. yes, it will still occur, but not in the number it is today.
