Never did understand it. Rental videos, but not music. So stupid are the uneducated of how the real world works. They always get conned out of the good life.

The same reason a certain percentage of all blank cassettes and cd sales go to the recording studios. The RIAA has always had our lawmakers in their pockets.

You can go to your public library and 'borrow' all the CDs you want for free. You will have an amazing music collection for free.

Are you a musician? Performer? Lyricist? Songwriter? Copyright owner? Trademark owner?

Under contract? Published? Distributed? Nationally? Regionally? Internationally?

You would have to understand the workings of each...WITH combination in various forms as to why certain countries have the regulations they do.

As much as that is confusing to anyone ...even those of us who are all the above...even so...there is a simple, legal, widespread and convenient way to obtain free music to protect the rights of all.

FREE...as provided for in public libraries worldwide. It get funky when you talk about RENTING it...

I'm not sure about the workings of it here in Japan, but it is a source of income for the artist. And yes, people still rent CD's. About 100 yen for one week.
