This sueing thing seems to be a hoax..at leat here in Egypt
yeah always best to support the artists by buying their records
I sometimes use Filesharing Programms, but I buy CDs too. The last CD i have bought was The Offspring - Splinter, a very good CD
Yeah, I noticed quite a bit of stuff on Kazaa sounds all static and stuff now...I've stopped using it, plus all this idea that the law is cracking down on it has kind of worn the novelty off pretty quick.
i use kazaa lite and its better than kazaa b/c i think kazaa purposly screws up the files when they are being transferred b/c i don't have any static in the files frm kazaa lite
I must admit, I used to buy alot more cds. Doesnt help that they are like 20 bux a pop.
i've bought 3 cds in my life and mainly use kazaa and imesh
There's not an option for legal downloading, which is now fairly widespread.
I use DC++
But is your research country oriented?
Here In Latvia these file sharing programms are very popular at the moment.
file sharing has become more or less a part of our generation...and for record companies to think that they can somehow stop it is utter foolishness
Filesharing seems to be a necessary evil at the moment, i mean, there is no way to stop it, and often the music that people want can be rare or hard to find. plus people in some countries don't have access to releases from others, or if they do, import costs are extortionate. plus we all know that the record companies can make a cd for very little money, so how can they justify charging so much money for an album. i know the artists have to make a living. perhaps if artists offered samples to listen to on their sites, and the music companies offered sampler cds at a cheaper rate (a bit like the free cds we sometimes get in the uk when we buy an album) plus cheaper albums, then it might encourage cd buying.
oh i forgot to add how extortionate singles are in the uk, you pay almost half as much as an album costs and only get about 3 or 4 tracks, of which some of them are often the same, just remixes.
i heard kazaa lite users wont get tracked.
I use Kazaa Lite and WinMX...
For me, it's not that I'm scared of the police crashing down my door, it's that the sharing program I keep stupidly downloading - Kazaa - takes up too much space. If I can't find what I'm looking for there, then I'm stuck with paying for it or grabbing the MIDI, which I need to do in my current situation.
I download, never buy..I'm cheap. heh..and this better not bring trouble to me, because I am coming after your @$$ if it does...j/k...i'd probably be in jail, or working too much to pay the fines
I use file share on an almost regular basis but you still have to buy cd's if you want to keep getting new music.(keep the music coming) advertising crap, I know but it makes sense.
After all X-Factor the artist isn't the only one responsible for bringing you the tunes you love.......
i think id rather download mp3's etc because the option is there, and i only buy cd's when i cannot find the rare tracks what are on albums
kazaa lite rulez.. u can download almost any music ur lookin for, but sometimez u end up downloading a bad file...
