my opinion about piracy
everybody owning a computer with a cdr burner is a pirate !
In some countries burning cdr of music that you owned (officials cds bought in a store) is illegal !!!
but there is "degrees" in piracy
when someone is asking a lot of money for hundreds of cdr "home burned" sold all over the world it became a "bussiness" that irritate the legal industry
if you trade privately some cdr with others people it is illegal too
but the risk is close to zero and big brother from BMG or SONY wil not give a damn of your life
THERE IS A LOT OF HYPOCRICY ( not shure of the spelling )
in france we are paying taxes on blank cdrs for copyright and in the other hand it is illegal to make copies !!
SONY is against piracy but sells cdr burners and blank discs !!!!!!
I remember that when they had launched the cassette tape back in 67 the industry was complaining it will be the end of the artists !!!!!!
poor madonna is begging for a meal in the street !!
and speaking of elvis fans yes they search "bootleg music"
but only because BMG WAS NOT SELLING IT !
the basic elvis fan who bought hundred ( thousands ? ) bucks in offical stuff
is treated sometime like a thief for a fistul of badly sounding bootlegs
hey mister bmg rca don't you never have a kee to shut properly your vaults with all that stuff vanished all this years
with hundred of hours of official recordings in "private hands" you better look for this instead of warning us and treating us like sh*t ( sorry )
strange way to thanks your best and most loyal buyers
