Oh, thank goodness. Back on topic!!

Your review? Did you download it first? You know, I never said it but your comment about wanting the CD art is the same argument we LP-ers had about the smaller format. NOTHING like seeing the Iron Maiden (Powerslave? Seventh Son? Somewhere in Time?) in full glory. Outstanding artwork that, I feel, was sadly lost in the CD format. Forget about it with the digital download.

Ratt? "Invasion of Your Privacy" anyone? Just a photo but WOW!

I've seen pictures of you both. I prefer to block this image from my mind and get back on topic.
SO, who has bought any new CDs lately!

I can't tell you how glad I am to read the word "almost" in your obviously joking response! LOL!

It's was worth saying to see what kind of response I'd get. To actually contribute in a conversation here again was nice. I believe I almost had an orgasm!

I love the whole experience of the cd,booklet,artwork and all that comes with it!

There's alot of cool stuff in the CD booklet that people who only download the music (legally or otherwise) end up missing. For example, the booklet in Motörhead's "The World is Yours" album contains some cool-looking and humorous sketches. And anyone who only downloaded Accept's "Blood of the Nations" album wouldn't know that all the band members have Type A blood.

...

Type A...

...

as in Type ACCEPT!


*bdm psh*

We had a record store here that i use to buy all my cds at and the guy that ran it said i was very rare person cause i still liked to buy cds!
He said ppl rather download stuff off the net etc etc!

Plus i am an album listener not a song,so i listen to albums as a whole from track 1 to the last track!
And i still listen to my cd discmann with me skullcandy headphones!

The only time i use mp3 player is workin out,going for a walk,travelling or riding the bus!
My friends laugh at me cause i don't have an ipod and all that other techie shit that the public seems to enjoy!

My original point was that downloading DID lead to me actually buying a CD. My point was that the system worked exactly as it should as I wouldn't have heard the whole CD any other way. However, I must say that I am an anomaly. The great majority illegally download thinking it "their right" to do so. The band somehow owes them as they supported them in the past. Certainly we've all heard of "bloodsucking record labels" that looks for any way to make money off a band. Bad contracts, poor percentage of "the take" of a show, etc. Now the model has flipped on its head. With relatively little production cost and with everyone with a little knowhow able to produce quality-sounding recordings in their home studios, the Industry now has to look for other means of replacing that lost revenue. Quickest way? Concert tickets, merchandise and food / drink in a concert. Bands are now on almost perpetual tours to make enough money to continue their line of work. Sadly, that is going to end up in the premature death of what might be a lot of good bands.

the part I have the hardest time with is separating the band and the lable.  for say rockarolla thats easy, the band is gone from it.  but normaly its not that way

OK but the thing is, I never said I owned the rights and I didn't say his logic was (legally correct), I said I was trying to find
fault with his logic and couldn"t. As far as stealing music goes I could care less who approves or disapproves. The recording
industry is full of millionaires who got that way by overcharging the masses for their product and now I have a chance to get
some of that back, fuck yeah I'm going to. Also, I do still support bands that I like. I still buy cd's and I still go to concerts, so
it's not like I steal everything with no give back. I also made the same argument about (borrowing) as you did. Sometimes
downloading does lead to future sales. I downloaded every MRH except one called M3 and now own every disc.(bought)

actualy, 2 of my boots were downloaded direct from robhalford.com back in the day.  tucson 82 and i forget the other one.  now, did rob have permission from the band, or whatever he needed to record them.  dont know.  not sure if those are legal, but since priest never sold those shows, or the others I traded for i guess it doesnt mater much.

every concert I have ever been to prohibits recording.  well except the privatly heald one in a field by a garage band that managed once to get a gig in a bar.  well, no at one metalica show they sold special tickets for recording, audio and video in a pit.  they did say you cant sell those.  probably didnt care if they were traded.  but any priest boots I have were recorded ilegaly. 

DC, BUD no, you dont own the worldwide rights, you own the right to have your copy.  Now if you lend it to a friend to listen to, whatever, its probably ilegal, certainly not enforcable and I wouldnt view it as wrong.  now if you and a friend agree to give each other a copy of every CD, and come up with a strategy to only buy one CD between the 2 of you (or 10 or thousands like the FTP services) well thats wrong.  but a loan.  I lent out metolagy to a kid I know.  he bought the whole priest colection that he could find.  that helped the band. 

DF, if this gets any higher brow, you may have to pluck your brows to stop them mixing with your hairline

Shouldn't you be off playing some gig (where a kid can certainly record you and give as gifts unless strictly prohibited by band or venue)? LOL!!

No. Technically you are not the complete "owner" of it. You do not own the intellectual property rights nor copyright to it. You basically bought a license for private, personal use. It is not "yours" to give as a gift.

Nice theory, though. You best read up on RIAA law while you can. I don't think you'll be able to access a computer once they finish with you. www.riaa.com/physicalpiracy.php
