This is true...although if an album is good enough, I definitely buy it.

only if the music states stays where it is at, meaning that bands rarely see much profit from cd sales. If bands received more of that money before filesahring was abolished, then no i would b fine with it

I would just download from a foreign site like I do now. There's always going to be some crazy Scandinavian guy willing to break copyright laws.

Yes, yes it would.

For legal reasons I must reply with 'No, no it would be great.'.

It would be a bit upsetting.

I would be reduced to spending hours beside a radio, hand poised over the "Record" button, waiting for that one song to come on so I could record it on a bloody CASSETTE TAPE.

I would only agree with this if albums became really cheap as a result, as a reult of them gaining profits lost by the pirate indutrsy.

I wouldn't mind paying 2-5 dollars per album. (dont call me a cheapo, I own a ton of albums, i have to eat, im not rich).


Come to think of it, this seems like a good idea. Instead of sum ppl paying like 50 dollars and sum ppl getting them free, why not charge everyone a reasonably low amount?

I think file sharing itself has very little to do with the prices of albums. So getting rid of file sharing probably wouldn't change the prices of CDs by much.

Also, I don't just use file sharing for music. So if it ceased to exist, I would lose a lot of my stuff.

No. A truly sad day would be the discontinuation of CDs, which is going to happen sooner or later. I don't know about you but I love buying CDs.

Liar.

Honestly, I agree with lowering the prices.
People just gotta stop being so greedy. Honestly, this is not the economy for it.

I'm real sad to say that I don't usually buy cds, but I don't have the money.

But regardless, the music I listen to is either hard to find, or really old (by 10-30 years), so I buy most of my albums used, which saves a lot of money.

I don't see how filesharing could be abolished though. Honestly, I think it's here to stay, and is the new way to go about things.

If anything is going to be abolished, it will probably be cds. Everything is becoming digital now, and I mean EVERYTHING. People want instant gratification, and for them, it's so much more convenient and rewarding to just click a few buttons and have the music right there to listen to. And I guess we really just shouldn't resist.

I think it's a good thing though. Good music is a lot more accessible, and smaller bands can now self-promote successfully. Not only that, but it saves a lot of plastic and paper don't you think
