irishajo Napster. folk tradition or theft? (58* d) RE: Napster. folk tradition or theft? 17 Apr 02


I use an alternative to Napster to hear artists who've been recommended to me. If I like what I hear, I will buy a CD.

I am really not sure what to think about this issue. I am not an aspiring professional musician, but I have been an aspiring professional writer. I suppose if I were to have a novel published, I'd like everyone who read it to have bought a copy. But libraries kind of circumvent that, don't they? I don't think of people who read library books as thieves. Am I oversimplifying the issue?
