If ur Canadian and or even if ur not. check this out. this is not just for the illegal "free" downloading (wink, wink) this bill could effect the locks on cds, dvds, etc so we would only be able to take a cd bought at Future Shop and put it on one device (PC, ipod). Same with DVD (psp). i can understand us downloading illegally but if i go to a store and buy a cd, i should be able to put that on as many devices as i want.

First they say it's legal to download media from the internet, now they are trying to say that its illegal to download music or even copy music you have purchased. I think their will be immense amounts of public protest against this bill.

Americans, must i say it one more time. this bill is a copy of what you have in place now! if you purchased the The Beatles Love cd you would noticed that it is copy protected, meaning not even transferable to ur mp3 once.
Since all the record companies are based in usa we get screwed with ur laws too.

People buy music?

I download music so it doesn't affect me.

That's absolute bullshit.


God, that sucks.

I've been downloading a shitload the past few weeks too.
#14
But we can still get that stuff off CD's it won't matter. We can still steal it. We'll jsut start turning to Russia for everything, like we do with these damn "illegal" tabs :P

our tabs might sneak under cause we create a version or the song. it is not perfect to the artists notes, right?

That's why all those other websites got taken down. I can't remember any specific examples but heaps got broken. I reckon Drumandbass.com or something similar was one of the first to go.

EDIT:

and to the guy above me, no it's still illegal, as we're copying their songs. Whether we do it well or not doesn't matter. In Australia clubs now have to pay everytime a song is covered live at a gig. I'm not sure what it's like in America but we're told not to play no covers if possible. But I normally throw one or two in.

You can thank Bill Frist for that.

can you still get fined if you have files that you downloaded before this bill was introduced?!

It's like Limewire with a couple of advantages.

That copy protection for cds is just retarded, I'll probably just go back to only downloading stuff if I can't do what I want with something I bought aside from selling copies of it.
