Ripping a CD is illegal - Page 5

post #41 of 46
I hope that never makes its way into Canada. Last I checked, in Canada all blank recordable media has a hidden surcharge that goes right back into the record and movie companies pockets. This hidden tax on the media, in Canadian law, allows us to bypass the copyright infringement issue. So we are allowed to back up media as much as we want, as long as it's not used commercially.

But the music industry issue is dying, the hot ticket these days is the movie industry. Although they are getting ZERO sympathy from me. There's not a chance in hell I'm paying $40 for one movie, no thank you. Even the cost of renting has gone up, I remember when it was seven 7-day rentals for 9.99, now they're $4 each.

I'm gonna cut my rant short right there. lol. You guys know the saying, The rich get richer while the poor get poorer.

I agree Prog. I have no sympathy for the Video insdustry what-so-ever. They're making millions of dollars off of one movie, with very little effort. Music, artists, and such are actually working hard...they work for their money (most of them) <deleted>

Only one thing to say to this "so sue me”, I understand that not buying a cd affects the artist's income, but look at it from a consumers point of view, the people who can afford the cd should buy it, but what about the kids who cant afford to? Should they be denied the pleasures of music? , For a long time now people have been judged by how they dress, what they listen to and what they own.... face it someone turned around to you and said "did you here so and so’s new song?”, and you say "no" they'll ask "why not?”, and the kid says "I can't afford to buy cds" he going to laughed at for sure, now I understand there are other points to the argument but call me naïve but I don’t care for the sake of 13.99 of which most goes to the record company I couldn’t careless if no one buys the cd…..that’s just my thoughts

Hopefully that wasnt directed toward what I said, cause I was talking about something someone else said about boycotting music completely...actually most of the earnings that bands get come from the concerts...
