I'd love to know the percentage of people knowing about that means of getting free music.
Swipe to go to another post.
I've done it, but not often. I try really hard to avaiod breaking copyright laws.
Rarely. I only use YouTube to sample music. If I like what I hear, I buy the CD.
I don't download music from YouTube. I purchase MP3s from iTunes and Amazon or stream music through Spotify.
It is such a waste of money to buy MP3's. It is like paying for air.
I do it often. It's a good way to get a hold of music that you can't otherwise get like Mixes. I also do it for sound bytes and gifs
Prevents wasting money on buying it in other forms.
Also robs the artist of their royalties.
Meh. Most accept the fact they need a new mone making model and are doing fine.
1999, the music industry was a $14 billion industry. Today, it’s half that. It’s valued at half that.
ROSANNE CASH: OK. For an 18-month period, I had 600,000 streams, and I was paid $104.
But, as long as you can get it free - that's the important thing.
Meh... It isn't the loaves and fishes.
I find your willingness to accept thievery - your own thievery a major turn off.
You are on time out.
The idea that a sound can be stolen is archaic. Was it stealing when people were dubbing tapes off the radio?
When I take a physical copy I'll accept it as stealing.
Do you honestly believe that what you are downloading is sound? You should hand with Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer. He's also baffled and confused over modern technology.
One could argue that your use of that picture is theft of intellectual property
Many of the bands I care enough to own actively encourage it anyways.
Is it stealing when you take a picture of a painting?
The consumption of music has changed and most bands have adapted. The record companies are the ones who are getting gouged and **** the record companies anyways.
Perhaps the bands you listen to couldn't sell their music anyway.
Taking photos of paintings is generally forbidden in museums and studios partially to protect the image from being stolen.
You're right, consumption of music has changed. That's why artists that actually are good enough to make money at it are complaining.
If you had a talent that was good enough that others would want it you might better understand.
Not many are complaining except the old dinosaurs who blew their wad when they had it and very likely wouldn't sell CD's now anyways.
I don't think Phish and the members of The Dead can labeled as "not talented enough".
Photography is generally forbidden at Museums because it detracts from others being able to enjoy it. Not being "stolen". Man museums in fact have times when you can take photos and painters generally don't get paid for having their work showcased at a museums. Only when they are creating an installation piece. Bad example for your argument.
Yeah, Taylor Swift is the most recent dinosaur to complain on this very topic.
Art Museums have historically had strict limitations on photography—either for the purpose of protecting light-sensitive works or because of copyright issues. Of course that's just the Los Angeles County Museum of Art saying that, so I guess it should be suspect.
Oh yeah, Taylor Swift is really hurting in the pocket book. Greedy **** if she is bitching, broad makes more on tours and mech than entire businesses do in a year. She ain't hurting and very likel is pushed by the record company to say that. But that's just speculation on my part.
Sorry Budwick but it's only a copywrite issue with art pieces if you sell the photo.
And it's up to you how much an artist should make?
It's only a copyright issue if the photo is taken illegally.
Nah you can legally take a photo of anything that you can see. The profiting is the issue.
I see. Do me a favor, go to your local art museum this weekend and bring your camera with you. Not some sneaky phone thing, a camera. IF they let you in, take a picture of the big display and share it with everyone next week.
Sure. I wont be charged with anything if I do. Just asked to leave.
And why would they ask you to leave Glispix?
BTW my hometown art museum DOES have days they allow it.
Hey look I just stole from Robert Crumb! lmao
My key board is shit. Y and R work when they want to.
Especially when you are resisting giving a straight answer. One of those reasons would be that they don't want you taking pictures of their exhibits.
But, we already know you don't give a shit about what anyone else wants.
It is good to know that you can still be shamed into faking errors with your keyboard and delaying answering. It's a shame you can't be counted on to tell the truth.
I am telling the truth. Go and look. Many of my posts the past few weeks have been missing r's and y's. If I don't always catch it when it acts up.
Taking a picture is not illegal.
You don't ever seem to give a shit about anyone else's wants much more often Bud.
I don't deflect answering as you do Budwick. You remember your dance the other day around a very specific question you wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole? I sure do.
Downloading is theft, no matter how much you want to sugarcoat it.
That is OK if you actually do buy it. Sadly most people just steal. Anyone that steals music online should be in jail, end of story.
Meh.... CD's and music sales are grossly over-priced and a rip-off.
It's not theft until you take a physical copy or sell a burned copy. It's just recording. IMO. Copyright laws are too harsh and silly.
You could say that about almost everything you pay for on a regular basis. I bet you don't go to a store and steal the stuff though...or do you?
And if everyone had your attitude, there would be no music to buy. What would be the point in spending 1000's to record an album, only to have most people just download it for free.
Fan base to tour on and buy merchandise.
Just how most bands are making most of their money these days. There is always going to be collectors as well.
Even that **-hat Ulrich has admitted it wasn't the end as his greedy ** thought when he was bitching about Napster.
