    Re: Re: still need

    Is it? No empirical proof that this is true has ever been presented.

    Re: Do What you Want

    You've been listening... but I guess you really haven't heard anything. The decline in sales over the last 10 years you speak of make my point for me.

    Also, I never brought up copyright. I don't want to take away your control of your own music, I want you to at least consider that looking at things differently, you may have more success.

    You have my permission to continue to distribute your music as a product and charge per copy.

    How's that workin' out for you, anyway?

    So if society were to change copyright laws so that it wasn't illegal for individuals to copy and share music, you'd be okay with that?

    Re: Re: change the perspective.

    Actually, I find this analogy to be exactly right. He's not saying that people are getting prints of original paintings for free. He's saying that the get to "experience" the paintings in an art gallery for free (like listening to a song on the radio).

    Now, some believe (as I do) that most people who download MP3's for free are (in their own head) listening to the radio. These are people who would normally never buy but download just because they want to hear it and see what's what. As a musician, you can disagree with this attitude and scream "theif!" if you like, but you do so at your own peril.
