Exactly. They even encouraged fans to make & sequence their own custom demos to send out to the world via the www. They were visionaries in that they understood the significance and scalability of the web. Within a few months everyone was listening to "I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor"

Visionaries? Not exactly that f*cking hard to figure out that exposure leads to CD sales.

Should they be prosecuted?
Many? How about all. Anyways you have a better chance of winning the lottery than being prosecuted for downloading.

It probably should be illegal, people have the right to charge money for their intellectual property. But just like a lot of illegal things I don't really find it morally wrong.

It's not like a lot of bands are out there saying "hey put this shit on limewire!" I am friends with a band currently trying to make it and they HATE HATE HATE it if you give their songs to people cause they want to sell more of their shitty $5 LPs. Arctic Monkeys aren't visionaries, but they are one of the biggest success stories of file sharing. Give them a little credit lol.

I saw an interview with Paul McCartney where he said he didn't mind if people were sharing his music. He was happy people wanted to share it. It's not as sensational since he's already made it, of course, but it's interesting trivia.

I wouldn't say he has made it.
okay, he's made a few good albums over the years but whether he has made it is debatable.
of course why should his ex wife have 4 first class flights a month while their kid is only allowed two and the other two in business class.

George Michael doesn't mind if people download his music for free.
So if you want to download the most pretentious crap ever created on the internet feel free to copy and paste my comments!

You're saying ex-beatles, ex-wing, successful solo artist Paul McCartney hasn't made it? What the hell?

How can you make it if being a tremendous success both musically and financially is not good enough? :p
Sorry man, but that's moronic. Maybe you should listen to and read a bit more about music and it's history.
