i do my fair share of music downloading, but typically if it is a band that i REALLY like, i will buy their album. id say my music collection is about 50/50 bought/downloaded, but this makes me happy that i don't have to worry about going to jail just because i wanted to check out some new music. i love being free to listen to albums and new artists. i buy the albums if i like the music, and also i like the physical CD booklet, case, etc.

In the words of JFK:

The CD's I want don't sell in any stores in my neighbourhood.

So I'm forced to download, but I do go to their shows though.

NO, fool. The internet has plenty of places to buy CDs stop making excuses. I think people should go down for downloading ridiculous amounts like many do.

This is good and bad. Now we can download all we want, but the downloads will take for ****ing ever because no one will seed them.

Old news, and you aren't 'in the clear.' They just won't sue you flat out, they'll contact your ISP who will deal with you their own way.

Not really in the clear. They're just using another method.
