Lars Has His Say
from the silly-drummer dept
Well, feel free to read what Metallica’s Lars Ulrich had to say to Congress concerning Napster. It’s a little more clear headed than some of the stuff he’s said in the past, but I still think he’s still completely misunderstanding what’s going on. He makes it sound as if the government is completely responsible for determing how Metallica can make a living. The government hasn’t helped me make a living. He also continues to compare downloading music to physical theft of CDs, which is obviously not true. When you steal a CD you have actually removed a tangible object from somewhere, thus denying the possibility of selling that exact item to someone else. Passing along a digital good is not the same thing.
