"signing up new bands, and a whole plethora of ideas and culture.”?
Wha t culture? What ideas?
Less than 1% of all the UAS/UK pop chart is using bands they can control. These idiots are spoon fed coke freaks! And there is no talent or culture in todays Industrialised pop charts, It fell from grace after 2000. What is left is a cesspool of 4/4 beat tunes with lots of dower "rap clap" and it makes me sick to see these Idiots making videos to compensate for their unhealthy attempts of making music! What they pass on to the kids of today is rancid! give me some zappa, santana, roxy music, anything but rap

A torrent site providing links can get shut down but you can Google a torrent sites torrent links? Surely google contributes to the issue not that I actually consider it a problem, more........ a benefit ;)

Copyright is essential, whether cheap people like it or nt. Its time and money consuming to create.

  


Here's a shock: Not everyone who pirates music is cheap. I know several people who have pirated music when they have no income and later purchase the songs through legitimate channels because they WANT to support the group.

It's not about profit, it's about Freedom of Information. Idea of sharing instead of selling...

15:16 Copyright laws are illegally forced on society to protect BPI profits, majority is against it

15:16 Laws were invented by human society to protect itself, good laws are supported by majority.

How quickly the British forget that they (like Homer’s Greeks) are the descendants of pirates.

The msm is trash. I refuse to lose my freedom and culture to these liars, fascists, and degenerates.

-That's an interesting comment. Can you explain how BPI is an illegal business? Not a fan personally

Anonymous user 16.05.2013 15:12
