The answer is simple, pirates just don't employ enough lobbyists or bribe enough politicians.

I don't understand why many people feel music should free. I am a musician, not for profit, but for personal enrichment. I don't sell my music, but I can tell you this: producing tracks sometimes takes days or weeks. Its a lot of time and effort - time and effort that I am not willing to throw away because most of society is after nothing more than a free lunch.
Should the pizza be 40 dollars? Over charging is my problem, a cd should not be 15-20 dollars....thats outrageous. A prime example of how pizza places over charge is: Dominos Large Sausage is like 13-17 dollars? Little Caesars is 5 bucks.....

Over charging= me finding cheaper methods.

And where the heck do you get the idea that the musicians get all this money? BWUAHAHAHA they hardly get anything from cd sales... They make there money from live performances silly goose.

Not to mention break beats aren't music (look at his name). His "songs" rightfully deserve to be pirated, if not burned at the stake. Let's see if your sarcasm/exaggeration meters are on...

Limewire: "We're working out licensing deals with labels. "

New figure, Limewire now owes $1.5 Trillion. Almost 22 thousand times what BP has to pay.

How dare limewire facilitate pirating an infinite resource in digital media. At least BP can kill a couple pesky critters with what they did.

Why would record labels sue for a billion+? They know they aren't going to get it. I would lessen it to something realistic, in hopes of actually being paid. This game of:
"You owe us infinity dollars!"
"No we don't"
"Then go to jail!"
Repeat.

Lol, you really dont' get it do you. Artists make almost NOTHING off CD sales. The record companies take the majority of the profit. Artists make almost pure profit off concerts - you need publicity in order to have a sellout concert. A musician friend of mine openly gives out his music, even though that is what he does for a living. However, from that, he is gaining fame locally, and hopefully nationally in the future. He's made a ton of money off his concerts because, well, people can't pirate concerts.
