Subject: RE: Napster. folk tradition or theft?
Not to pick on your words Mick but I would like to suggest (and I think you'd agree) that even if the people hurt are Sony and BMG, it doesn't make it ok. I don't mean to imply that you said it was ok, I just wanted to make the point that if BMG and Sony are hurt, yeah they will survive but eventually they will need to make up that "lost" money and the way they will do that is increasing prices for those of us actually buying the CD's. It would be like the mentality of saying "Hey, the insurance companies are rich, they can afford my false claim." Again, I'm not trying to imply that that's what you meant, it's just something that popped into my head after reading your post.

Take Care,
