Pay bands what they are worth and they will keep making great music!

We all want new passionate music....be willing to pay for it!

I agree.
Especially on the net. If people love a new band they donate to them to support them.
But the Rcs don't like as they dont get their cut.
Who are the rcs to say who can share a song or album if they own it anymore then lending a cd or book to a friend?

Tell that to the record companies... less than 20% of what you pay for an album will actually go to the band. I have no problem paying a band I like money, because if they're good I'll almost certainly see them in concert anyways if I'm given the opportunity.

that is why the rcs want to stop all this I feel.
They are going mad to try to control this digital age.
I don't know how they will do it.
I once asked what the biggest revolution in music was and jackhammer said it was the internet.
I think he is right.
The pistols would never have been sacked today.
The Rcs are trying to introduce international laws.
Big bands like radiohead asked for donations and it worked. I see new ways of bands getting big and it may not involve rcs at all.

None of us wants to work for free....do we? Especially in this tough economy...

Bands have to fight with record companies for more money.

If you are making passionate new music and touring....(working for it)...the money will come.

Ask bands like Coldplay, U2, and others who are showing everyone else the way!

I'll be sure to ask them

Seriously dude, you do realize that most of a band's revenue comes from touring and merchandise sales these days because of the lucrative nature of all record deals, right?

I think the point is don't steal music. Pay for it.

The title of this thread is about file sharing and yet most of the discussion has been about paying for music or getting the music for free.

I think the point is that most people here would pay 10-15 quid 20-30 dollars a year subscription to download as much music as they want ontop of their broadband bills.
