  • Ripping music to your computer illegal?

    The Recording industry now wants to make sure that you don't even download a CD to your own computer regardless if you aren't planning to share it?

      How in the hell could this be enforced?

      Or are they counting on the honor system . . .

        coooooooool. so, i don't download music basically because i don't know how. BUT, i do have an Mp3 player. so the only way i get music on my player is to rip a cd to my puter and then put it on the player...but i'm not supposed to do that anymore? so, should i just wipe my ass with my Mp3 player and donate it to somebody that actually does steal music online?

          Sounds like a mighty good plan.

            You say that as if the honor system wouldn't be an effective method here.

              I think it is crap I don't download or share music but I do rip my CD's to my PC for my own use I don't see any thing wrong with it if you paid for the CD's.

                  I will admit that I download music for free. You can't really call it stealing, because it doesn't deprive the artist of anything. I support the artists by going to as many concerts as I can, and I will buy cds and t shirts from those concerts. The artists make almost no money when you buy a cd. It is ridiculous. The people who should be making the money actually make very little off of what I pay for.

                  Support artists by buying directly through them and going to concerts. **** the RIAA

                    they can make it so you can't download the cd onto a comp.

                      then again, you could just listen to the independant labels and none of this would be an issue.
                      says you...if everyone did things independently there would be no record...anyways, I'm sure your a fan of the independent movies as well...independent labels can't afford to make the music like the huge record companies...thus the reason why people still buy the big record label cd's...they want quality (as in sound) music...that basement crap only sounds good for so long...

                        And within a week it would be cracked. The internet is an incredibly powerful tool. Major media corporations don't have much time, unless they embrace the internet and use it to their advantage, rather than trying to shut it down.

                        The older people in charge of the media don't realize the true power of the internet. Hell our generation takes the power of the internet for granted. You have to talk to the late 20's early 30 year olds. The people who didn't grow up with the internet. They will tell you how much it has changed our world already. We are only scratching the surface of what it will do.

                            Downloading music for free is absolutely stealing. Even if you aren't taking much away from the artist, you're still getting something that you would typically pay for. It does all end up going back to the artist anyway, because if the record companies start making less money, they start paying the artists less money.

                              what does it matter...downloading music will continue to happen whether the major corporations want it to or not...
