Pirating Music

Do you ever feel guilty when you pirate a bands music? Well I don't, if a band is truly out there to spread music and not sell out and make money why would they care if I listen to their music for free? Most bands claim that they do it for the fans but then backlash at people who steal their music. Isn't that a tad-bit hypocritic? A person who enjoys a bands music normally goes to see their shows and buy their merch to show support for that band. Sure buying their album is also support but there's plenty of people including me who don't have the financial means to buy your music along with all the other bands I listen to. They get fans by spreading their music not by selling their album. There's also the argument that if you don't buy it then they don't get any money, which is a lie. The record company loses the money. Every time a song gets played on any radio station that artists gets money for it. Every live show they have they get a huge part of the ticket fees. When they sell merch they get more money. Ever watch the show Cribs on MTV and just be astonished by some artists houses? Dosn't look like they are in a financial hole does it? Seems to me that it's just greed in the air and artists are trying to take advantage of the fans. But without fans your music is nothing.

  1. I do not feel bad because most artists make no money off CD sales. If I want to support an artist I see them live, where they see a lot of the money.

  8. I don't feel guilty when I pirate music, because if albums really worth what they cost, I buy them instead of downloading. I'm not gonna pay X€ for a single song
