|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.

|IOW? yes its lossy. I have crappy speakers and listen at work, so its not at "real metal volume"|
and yes, lets ignore what we did when we were 12. those god awefull tapes made by holding a tape recorder beside the record player.....
and way back at the begining I said, if you paid for it once. so, I have rocka rolla on cassete. now I have no desire to own it on CD. if I want to hear one song, youtube is there for that one time. but to me, I paid for RR. the band got paid, sony or whoever produced it got paid, gull mostly got paid. maybe thats a bad example. still its the reality.
if I wanted to buy a book, then manage to scan it onto my computer (asside from needing my head examined) I dont see an issue. same with the DVD. if I get it from the library or the video rental place, then yep, its an issue.

|Ok, then. Despite the huge "FBI Anti-Piracy Warning: Unauthorized copying is punishible under federal law" that is stamped on the back of a cd by the Federal Bureau of Investigation / Department of Justice" you still think it is legal? Do you think the same of a DVD that you copy? How about a book? Would you lump them into the same category as a CD? Don't they, like the electric company, have fixed costs (machinery) plus static costs of distribution, artwork, etc., plus more dynamic costs such as Big Box store discounts, printing, etc.? While I am glad to hear that you paid for SFV, to be honest, your argument makes no sense to me. |
Do you think that the production costs of making a DVD, video game, computer OS/software or music are so different? Sure, some cost more, some cost less. Moral is that they all COST. Would you steal a CD from a store? I hope not (at your age...we ignore what we did when we were younger...heh). What possible difference could you make between going into a store and stealing a CD vs. downloading an illegal copy? It is easier?! How about that DVD question. I have been in many a city were you can buy perfect pirate copies on the street. While I can buy it for pennies, is it right? Upstairs I have a couple of Rolex watches I bought in Brazil for about $10USD. Those are certainly fakes but it is a tangible good that someone (typically poor) took time to construct. I would never be able to afford (or want) a Rolex in any case. However, did I steal from Rolex because I bought a knock-off? No. I'd never EVER buy one. Downloading a CD, though, hits closer to home. Rolex won't go out of business because I bought a fake watch. A certain band might not be able to pay bills if their cds don't sell. Pay to support your favorite bands, is my point. The Justin B. / boyband machine will roll us otherwise.
Parting thought? When you "import" a store-bought CD to your harddrive using Media Player you are probably importing in WMV format. Lossy, IOW. No matter. If you legally own the recording, you are fine. The people who download without ever having once paid for the music are both engaging in illegal activities as well as damaging the genre of music we love. Low sales and those bands will go to no-name labels and then disappear. Bieber effect. Pop sells. Metal doesn't.

|lets leave taxes out, because the government does very little with my money except fuck it all up. your government has a similar record|
but your arguments dont make sense to me.
The electric company has 3 costs.
1. the wires to my house
2. the generating plant
3. the maintenance, fuel etc.
then I supose they have administration, managers, envelopes postage, dividends, etc
the first 2 you said are paid for, but they are amortized over a number of years. the third is going to vary.
now on my bill, its actualy laid out this way, and its 3 companies, one to generate, one to transmit, and a third bills it all out.
compare that to say the 30th aniversary release of screaming, which I just bought.
the band recorded this 30 years ago. minimal if any time spent touching it up. the record company has some costs to print, market and distribute the disk. Note I said I purchased the disk. I did download Jugulator a while ago. lost my original.
oh, and the copy protection, I have had one disc in over 10 years that windows media doesnt rip to the hard drive. I dont do anything to defeat it.

|Following that logic, why would you pay your bills? Someone mows your lawn or, even better, the electric company that has already run lines to your house has very little actual expense. Don't pay them and it is just their lost revinue. Taxes, What does paying them get you? Will the government collapse if you don't pay? Of course not. Then again, you are speaking more of goods vs. services as all are examples of lost revinue. |
Is a CD a good or a service? I think most would argue it is a good. Did people work long hours to produce it? Yes. You just don't see it like you do the person who cuts your lawn. Did people spend a lot of time, effort and talent to produce a CD? Certainly more than the guy that cuts lawns for a living. You just don't know them personally.
So, don't pay your electric bil or your taxes. After all, it is just a matter of lost revinue, isn't it?

Now your second point. Lost the disc. Well, extrapolate. What if you lost your big, hunkin' diamond pinky ring. You expect to get a new one? Same argument, no? "Hey, I once owned an old Honda Accord but it was stolen. Give me a new one! What? Don't make the same model? Well, I deserve the new model! After all, I paid for it once, right?"

|Yes. It is illegal to download there but it is an odd law. DMCA (American) laws are fighting CRIA (Canadian) laws in Canada. For a while it was legal to download for non-profit but, as it was mostly American music, DMCA wouldn't let go. Look up what happened to "Demonoid." World-wide, they are using US laws to try to go after foreign countries to turn over illegal downloaders and, specifically, uploaders. |
Here they are now sending letters through the ISPs about illegal download activities. Especially to the dumb ones that don't know how to hide their IP. Some companies (such as Comcast) gives you a 3 fouls and disconnect sort of letter. In a clandestine move, the US govt is now going after foreign countries using this law as its bullog.
YOUR question is easier. Downloading copyrighted materials is always morally wrong. Uploading will get you caught more than downloading.

|First answer (varies from country to country) is "yes." In your country if you do not own a physical version (LP, cassette or legally downloaded version) of the item in question then it is illegal and you'll open yourself up to fines and possible jail time (though the latter is unlikely). It would be tried by the feds who would use the "prove you didn't sell it" tactic.|
Out of print works the same as books. The fact that it isn't in print doesn't mean it isn't under copyright. Just ask Amazon. Copyright does expire but they are also moving to change that number of years IMO for monitary gain.

|Well, maybe there is a start: you actually think I am pissed. Believe me, there are far bigger things to be concerned about and a discussion on the internet isn't one of them.|
Now, just for argument's sake, you said that you liked the new VH but openly said that you didn't buy it. Not brain surgery there, you stole it. It was for sale and available yet you chose not to pay for it. That is what we call stealing.
You made the comment that "some of us can't buy everything we want." I argue that if you have the money to see as many concerts that you do, plus all the gas, food and lodging included, you yave a poor arguement there. After all, you were the one who showed off a pretty freaky tattoo that you claimed took hours. Don't know for sure but I will bet you anything that you actually paid the person for their hard work. Think albums come from the sky? Nobody makes livings off of them as musicians, producers, tech, etc.? Still, claim that "you don't get it?" You are a thief in that you stole someone's hard work for your own personal enjoyment. Is that clear enough?
Am I butt-hurt (always loved that JD expression) that you stole from VH? It was a clear case of theft but I'd actually be upset had you done that to Priest. Here we have HR buying multiple copies to make up for people who don't pay. Might not hurt a bigger band but, as KK even says, it makes things VERY tough for new bands nowadays. Yes, including MRH which, I assume, you actually purchase. Why bother paying when you can download just about every album for free? You are obviously not destitute. Why pay for them?

Fair play if you can afford to jump in a car, and drive to Detroit to see bands you've admittedly seen numerous times before, no?|

@ Guido...didn't buy that album but I did steal it. I like it. I think it ranks up there with some of the early stuff.
A few shit songs but that's the norm for them. Overall a good album.
My last purchase was Saturday night at MRH's Halloween show. I bought
TENAFLY VIPER "the queen, the night and the liars"
It's a solo disc from one of the MRH vocalists. It's completely different than MRH. It's more straightforward hard rock and metal.
I think some here may enjoy it. I'm listening to a song right now called "Man On The Corner". A slower melodic song. Really good stuff.
I may post a video if I can find something on Youtube.

Bought exactly the way it should be done. Like most of the music we collectively like, the only song I heard with VERY limited airtime on only one radio station (achBONEYARDoo) didn't exactly float my boat "Tattoo" - first thought: meh. Then, with all the crew on "That Metal Show" saying that it was the worst song on the album, I downloaded it. Damned if they weren't right! While I already had the album, I dig the artwork and also like to PAY for what I like. Bought a legal copy at Wallyworld yesterday.
