and i bet lars ulrich from metallica is just fuming over this everytime the riaa loses ground in this obviously losing war over tryin to rape everyone
for as much money as possible.
sorry to say that the record button has been around for a very long time.
what about sheet music sold in music stores that allow you to play the same songs we've all heard? what about the sheet music for classic music?
is THAT pirating?
give me a frigging break! i am so tired of multibillion dollar industries trying to rape us for every penny they can.
i can record a whole season of any show i want. i can then later avoid buying the boxed set of that season. but i'm still having to buy the
material to record the shows and when i watch the show their ratings go up with means more advertiser dollars for everyone involved including the
stars of said show.
same concept with radio. companies pay the radio stations to play certain songs (usually new releases) a certain number of times per hour/day/week.
in turn htis interests people to buy yhe CD, sometimes it works, sometime it doesnt but recording the song off the radio hasnt stopped people from
buying the CD/album later. in fact if the idea that recording it from the radio means that noone would buy the album/CD then the recording industry
would have went out of business decades ago. bands groups and artists would be flat broke. the fact people continue to buy CD's flies in the face
of the logic they are trying to use to argue that they should be able to rape us as much as much as possible.
what a great way to treat your customers, like thieves and then sue them. brilliant idea.
