So What are peoples thoughts on Downloading Music Im talking illegitamate downloading, limewire sorta stuff coz i think that its robbing artists and record companies and record shops and letting a whole bunch of **** music seep through the cracks and into the mainstream market.
I admit it can be too tempting.

I don't do it, simply because Virgin Media are using some deep packet inspection technology to bust people.

*shakes fist*

I'd pay for it if I could download unlimited tracks DRM free for a set monthly fee. Until then, I won't bother.

I buy albums to support artists, also i would rather have the full cd with the artwork and everything else than just a file.
Gear:
  • Orange TH30
  • Framus Cobra 4x12
  • Gibson Les Paul Studio
  • Gibson Explorer
  • Taylor 214CE-G

if its a whole album then i'll definitely buy it as i want to support the artist so they have enough money to make another one, if its an odd song here or there though i have no qualms with illegitimate downloading

I don't. I buy ALL my music. I still have respect for the artists, the law, and our society.
Need fashion advice?

Album sales give artists hardly any money (artists on major labels might get €0.50 per album if they're lucky). I download music, and if I like it, I buy band merch, which gives a signifcantly higher amount of money to the artist (and usually none to the record company), if I really love an album, I buy it anyway for the album art and just so I can physically have it, like my NIN collection =D

EDIT: How could I have forgotten that video?! xD

Sorry, but because you listen to Tool doesn't mean you're intelligent.

Lol, I download alot, I just added 300 or so songs to my library.
Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

That's pretty much what I was going to say, I download quite a lot of music and listen to it to find some music I really dig, if there's something I REALLY like I'd buy a t-shirt and/or go to their gigs, perhaps buy their CD when I'm there.
