Saw this subject on the work email. Follow this list to learn random stuff ans stay informed, so thanks for all your
posts and such.
Also do the music thing, and I can tell you that if you ask ten musicians who write and record their own music, you'll
get ten different answers. From personal experience, I don't really care about electronic copies being redistributed
for free, but when people sell electronic copies or steal physical copies (that shit gets expensive quick), that's when
I get. pissed.
However, I also feel that if you have an opinion about that, it should be communicated to folks before you give them
copies, so my act has a little statement on our website, goatropinbastards.com, that asks the downloader to only uses
the stuff for their own personal use.
I can understand artists being pissed if they spend six figures to make a record and such, but when you're a hobbyist
making albums on a computer in a tar papershack in the Appalachia, I guess your a little more lax.
Hope that helps with the rights-holder point of view.
