My philosophy............free downloading is great if you just wanna check someone out. If you really like the artist your listening to, and the free downloaded version of the CD ur listening to..........support him/her by buying their CD in stores. If the downloaded song/album is absolute garbage (Soulja Boy), fuck it.

That's my philosophy personally..........but I do somewhat agree with mushroomjay. At the end of the day, "Free is Free"


I'd buy the CDs if I had the money, but there are Concerts and Performances which are way more better.

I download illegal music all the time. If I had the cash to buy the CDs I would, but I just don't. All of the music (~142 gigs) on my computer is downloaded via torrents. blogs, and slsk. I really don't have any intention of buying most CDs I have downloaded now though.

If it weren't for downloading music I wouldn't even know of 80% of the bands I listen to now.

...that's not true at all. Didn't you read the rest of my comment? Downloading music is how a lot of people are introduced to new bands.


sorry; what i meant by that is they won't be heard by the music companies. Basically they won't get signed.

most artists get paid through advertising and stuff like that (ex. britney spears)
britney spears doesnt have any new albums and yet is still getting paid $800,000 a month. I don't think Jay Chou is gonna starve if i borrow a couple songs for my ipod.

No-one gets it. HOW ABOUT THE NEW BANDS. Bands that are on the brink of getting signed or not and need RECORD ROYALTIES first in order to be able to create tours and high-class promotion

This topic is going too off...no one is asking for downloading sites here.

Basically I'm for buying CDs but sometimes I just can't afford it so I download the release instead.

It may be wrong,but if I had cash I would definitely buy. Plus I usually only like 1 or 2 songs frm the whole album( i usually listen to them here and there so i know most of the songs) of any artist,so it'd be a waste...

There are ppl dying everywhere,global warming,wars etc etc....lets not worry bout all that

I have totally sidetracked....I know
