Good. Why shouldn't it be taxed? It's 20 cents (about) for an album, it's hardly going to drive people to illegal downloads or bankrupt you to buy music you like.

Lame.

Anyone seen that Boob-Cushion link there?
Crazy people.
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

Just presents more of a reason for people to steal music.


20 cents? If you can afford broadband, you can afford 20 cents an album you cheap wanker.

Anyone who steals music because of this is officially a tramp and should be treated as such. Their house should be taken away, they should be banned from taking a shower and people should kick them as they walk past in the street.

And if you beg for money, everyone must say this in response:

"I'm sorry, I'd give you 20 cents but if I do that I'd have to illegally download music instead of legally download because I wouldn't be able to afford AN EXTRA TWENTY CENTS AN ALBUM!"

Fucking dickheads.

I agree with you on this, an extra 20 cents won't really make much of a difference.

Ok, I woudl just continue to download ILLEGALY.
Soon you will sit on the bench

You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high

Meh, I don't download music from iTunes and stuff anyway...


Well, music from iTunes can't be put on to any MP3 players besides iPods anyway, right? That's the only reason I don't use it more often.

Why put it in caps? Are you boasting about being a thief? Do you think ripping off artists is somehow a cool thing to do? Do you think we're impressed by you being such a badass?

except that it isn't illegal to download media (from torrents, P2P, or however else you get it from the internet) in Canada. So you are still downloading legally if you are in Canada.

I download the songs from bands that I don't want to buy whole albums for, or if I was told to check them out, otherwise I like having a CD.

How does using capitals show the context of what you're saying? Do you know what "context" even means?

I don't see why anyone still pays for music. Anything you want can be found for free via bit torrent.

Wow. So their idea of counteracting the effects of piracy is to make the legal product more expensive. Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Meths, although your views are obviously very strong, I'd advise you not to go calling everyone wankers and such, unless you want banninating.

Anyway. It's much more complex than just downloading = bad, buying = good. You can still support your band by buying their merchandise and going to their shows. This is my policy. And do you know why? Because only a tiny percent of record sale money goes to the band. Therefore you are probably supporting them better by buying their merch.

Example: Even though I downloaded their music illegaly, Metallica have probably still made a good £80 to £120 profit from me. I'm hardly stealing the roof over their heads, am I?

The industry is changing. I believe one day the music will just all be free, there will be no traditional record companies, and bands main income will be from gigs, endorsements, merchandise and the like.

Painting it as black and white "downloading music = you are the scum of the earth" is frankly just ignorant.

Not everyone can afford to pay for an album. If all of us stuck to buying our music I wouldn't have a single song on my playlist that I like anymore.
