In relation to the argument of "The artists are losing money because of it", they wouldn't even notice the tiny amount they lost through downloading. They don't get the money from cd sales- they get a lump sum from the record company and then get added amounts from ticket sales.
All in all, music piracy: Not bad.
Also- to whomever asked if I downloaded Green Day's stuff- I downloaded American Idiot to see if it was worth buying (all their other cds have been gifts over the years). I'll always download an album first, then if it's worth it, I will buy it.

lmfao Do you think record companies Just pull these amounts of money out of a magic hat? How much money an artist recieves is based off of the record sales.

Yeah, and in addition to that, they don't just get a lump sum, it's a loan, that they have to pay back through record sales.

It was more of a rhetorical question but hey, interesting to see how many did download their songs. What about the booklet thing? They're awesome...

HMV and JB Hi Fi will both have them, you just have to ask them to order it in.

Yeah, even if I can't get the CD from a CD store near me, I still ask them to order it in for me xDD

I ended up buying a few from eBay, and I do plan to buy the rest sometime.

I don't know where I stand. I guess it's not bad. But it's also not good.

have you considered she may be twelve or something like that?
if I was a little younger I'd have only digital music

but I'm more of a vintage guy and prefer cassettes to anything (then vinyl, but it's harder to find and I only have about fifty

seriously, artists don't lose money on album sales
the record companies do
artists make money on tour
