PostSubject: The Free Alternative   Sat May 10, 2008 12:14 am

I know a lot of people like to download stuff for free. (Music, Programs, Games, ect...) This has nothing to do with the law but morality. I personally don't illegally download stuff because I believe that the person who made that content deserves money for it. How would you feel if you spent 2 years making an album and later you find out that 75% of the downloads were illegal. You only made 1/4 of what you should have. Keep in mind that these are realistic figures. Why should you continue producing albums if it costs you more than you make? The same goes for ROMS and other programs. I like to put myself in the artists shoes to see what they would feel.

I had a geometry sub a few weeks ago who told us about the best and easiest ways to illegally download things, lol. Though some artists are feeling that they're being ripped off in what little percentages they get from total sales. Because of this, a few artists have uploaded their own album onto their sites as a free download. Radiohead did this, but I don't think it's still available for download.

How would you feel if you wrote that song?

If it were me, I'd ride home in a limo to my Californian 4-story waterfront beach house and have myself a good cry while watching my own music videos in my home theater.

I don't think I'd appreciate it much, but I would already haave money from people who had bought my previous works, and those who are honest (like I normally am) and actually bought the CD or the track.
