GUEST,Big Mick Ouch, we've been Napstered (57* d) RE: Ouch, we've been Napstered 18 Dec 00


Which is exactly what my point was in the other thread. All of you that continue to try and defend this shit can bite me. Sorry for being crass, but I am tired of folks trying to defend this practice as though somehow it is good for the artist. The users defend it by saying it exposes your music to more people. Well, the publishing houses, according to the post above, bought into that argument as it fits the artist, but not themselves. When the deal was cut the only people being compensated was them. Until the technology exists to compensate the artists directly for each download, Napster and other software like it, is designed for one thing. And that is so those that want something for nothing can have it. It is nothing less than theft. You can couch it in whatever terms you want, it still comes down to cheating the person(s) that created it.

Dave, my dear friend, sorry to hear about this. I think it sucks. By the way, the cat has had her suitcases packed and checks the mail everyday for a plane ticket. It is getting so I don't know what else to tell her. I am out of excuses for you. Soon she will think you don't care.............LOL.

All the best,

Mick
