Do you think it's right to illegaly download your favorite artists music even though you're hurting them in the long run?
I would love to hear your opinions.
In Canada we pay a tax for that right. We pay extra for cd-rw and that extra goes to the music industry.
Well, since it is illegal I say it is wrong. I wouldn't do it.
"illegal" downloading is wrong
legal downloading is right
What counts as illegal and legal depends on your country/region.
Simple answer no?
It's wrong, but not really as simple as the record companies try to make out either. I can't count how many great bands I've discovered from fan vids, which the record companies consider to be copyright violations as well, and in many cases I've gone on to buy an album by the artist.
I know it's wrong, that's why i made this topic thing. it's just that all of my friends think it's the best way to get music right now. And most record stores are disappearing, Best Buy doesn't have all of the cd's I want. I don't even really support legal downloading, I love actually going to a record store and buying a new cd and looking through the booklet and reading all the lyrics, thank you's and everything. I also enjoy actually having the cd right there and not having to rely on my computer to keep it for me.

This is a question that I have been asked many times. I say the answer has a lot to do with the band itself. Like with a lot of things, every band is different. I would like to ask what are your viewpoints and answers...
