I'll pay for good music.

Well, if I want to listen regularly to some obscure music that would normally cost me $200.00 because only X number of CDs were made and it was never put on ITunes, what other feasible way is there besides DLing it by whatever means I choose? Also, what if the band I like doesn't come to tour where I live and local places don't carry any of their albums in stock? Very annoying circumstances wouldn't you say?

And really, when you think about it, it's actually quite a wonder that MORE people aren't DLing music without paying right now, since for the most part if you have WinRAR and the ability to type in "Band+album+blogspot" on Google, you can download and extract almost any album you want within seconds/minutes.

Amen. I own the discographies of a lot of my favorite bands, but when someone says "hey check these guys out," I'm not going to drop $15 on the recommendation of some dude on the internet.

In a lot of cases with quite a few obscure bands you only have to type in the bands name to find a download link because someone upping an obscure album on a blog is the only attention these bands have had in decades.

Take Arctic Monkeys for example. They encouraged people to share their demos over the net and such and as a result they had a HUGE debut. Now they're insanely successful.

Good point.

So yeah file sharing is ok...if you are willing to pay for it...like iTunes or one of those sites...sure!


(I still prefer having the CD though.)
