I never bought the home taping is killing music argument but there is a difference surely between someone taking an album that they have purchased and copying it for a friend or including a track or two on a mix tape and the same person taking the same recording and sharing it with everyone on the planet who can be assed to click "save as"?


what is the difference? numbers, how many folk if they didn't have that cd availabe at a click would buy it, surely a big a problem as the net are
cds are so easy to copy that they pose as much as a problem, perfect copy every time in less time than ever, look at the arse the record companies made trying to combat that problem
There is so much opposing info flying around that you can fit the facts and figures to suit your viewpoint
Simple fact is the business model has got to change, if that means that Simon Cowell ends up ruling the world so be it
how does Jazz, classical, peruvian nose flute music survive, Brass Bands, choral , it's not all grant supported, so obviously there are ways and means, how did they survive in the 60s when the underground really was underground, how does a band like Isis,Red Sparowes, The Meteors [insert name of mildly successful band here] survive
and to get back where this thread started how does using a big blunt stick to beat the internet innocent help. What happens when they shut down all the sites and find surprise! All the kids are spending their pocketmoney on COD6 and going to see Twilight
