I actually don\'t really mind this legislation. Maybe people will start getting paid for their hard work!

I bet buckethead has lost hundreds of thousands of dollars because of piracy.

It\'s time to get paid and make the music industry more lucrative.

Also people might be forced to go to the library to gain knowledge. God forbid if you try to grow your brain!

I totally disagree with what your saying however I can respect your opinion .. but there are artists out there that get paid the same for making  a 40 minute cd and you still pay the same $15-$20 as opposed to another artist like tool who may shell out awesome work which is like a 65 - 70 minute cd and quality artwork. I just think that we the consumer have gotten ripped off for so long that now in this new era muscians and artists actually have to work harder for their money. On a final note though I strongly believe that if the artist is good enough then people will buy their music. and buckets has LEs and what not that people buy as a collectors item.. so pirating it defeats  the purpose..

I don\'t have a problem with trying to prevent piracy, but SOPA does so in a heavy handed and clumsy way.  It is more about controlling the internet than it is about piracy.  SOPA would have potentially devastating effects on the ability to freely pass information on the internet.  Fore example, d you really want the government deciding what sites are allowed to appear in an internet search?  SOPA is a terrible, terrible peice of legislation and deserves to fail miserably.  It is just like the government to identify a problem and then come up with a terrible way to deal with it (see the "war on drugs" for another great example of this).

i think there is a paradox : thank to internet, to buy a cd is very cheap these days (lots of good website which sell good music cds with cheap prices). with those online cd shops (like the" tdrs store" here), I buy cds from websites located in many different countries, delivered to me, it\'s great. i love to live in 2012! (and i love cds). SOPA is punishment, SOPA is useless. the answerof the music industry problem is "on which type of material, music can be sold to people ?" (cd ?, a new type of memory card ? [microsd card], micro usb key?...? I\'m "old fashion" and I hate to pay for" non physic" music (mp3, Itune,..[..I bought only one song in my life on itune : it\'s the one BH made for japan after the tsunami...]) because if you have a problem with your hard disk, you loose everything.

I bet BH has gained ten thousand fans from "pirated" music.

He also was very permissable about bootleg live shows.

But, I agree he deserves to make some money.

Copyright infringement is wrong, and so is SOPA.

Bootleggers are the ones that make downloading music fucked up. People that make,buy or sell bootlegs are the real crooks. The people that download music have no intention of buying music. I agree it is dumb. But music lovers and collectors alike are what keeps the industry afloat. And i wont lie if i just ordered an LP in the mail. I\'ll download it so i have it on my PC. Cause i don\'t want to rip it from LP to PC. People need to realize that SOPA has more to do with them getting one step closer to controlling our every move then it does with copyright laws. Thats just the easy way for them to get the support they need. Our freedom is controlled by the options were given. And they take them away ALL THE TIME.

I completly disagree with Bucketdog but i get what he is saying.

In my oppinion SOPA is in part the response from big label\'s failure to adapt to current times. I know that SOPA isnt restricted to just music but when i heard from this back in september, it was much more scary than the one they have revised now but it still thratens everything online. If it were to pass and i put a freaking picture of the enterprise riding a unicorn while darth vader is in the back, this site could be immediately shut down. In the same sense i make Buckethead tabs and i post them online, according to what i know that is also copyright infringment and so far they are on the .tk, Ultimate Guitar and Youtube. I alone would have been the cause of the shut down of the biggest advertisement sites for Buckethead\'s carreer. Last time i checked, that would be the last Buckethead would need.
He doesnt get mainstream attention and yes, he has gained a lot of followers by pirates who download music (myself included), but at the same time its because of that i now buy albums (specially Big B\'s albums).
Bucketdog, you might say that Buckethead is lossing a ton of money. In my point of view its the other way arround.

In any case, that abomination is now dead but im counting the days it will take before another law like SOPA appears
He works on the farm,
He makes fun of me,
But thats the lats thing youll see,
Cuz im gone use him for something that you wont understand

People who make bootlegs from artist that allow filming or recordings (Like Bckethead and Primus) are not the same as the Assholes selling there recordings! Tradeing free on torrent sites of these allowed shows is not the problem. Paint me with a broad brush stroke and I do the same to you!
P.S. If Stuck up Pricks like maynard think it is ok to charge 100$ a ticket for their show then I desrve to be able to record the music. "Once it hits the air it is free for all to share!" Quote me !

you took the word "bootlegs" wrong. how about "nock offs" cause I\'m talking about people who make,buy and sell "FAKES" does what i say make sense now cause i agree with you. And further more If they don\'t sell it i don\'t pay for it. sry but if its out of print i don\'t pay for it(unless i can pay for an mp3 ver). and tool does charge way to much for shit. they make a music video and then sell it on a dvd for like 15 bucks. FOR ONE VIDEO. When other bands will just make a dvd with a bunch of videos and sell it for 20 and you\'ll get all the singles off of one album. or even more sometimes

I looked through the sopa act a little more and def disagree with it now. I\'m just upset about the piracy and "sharing" going on. It really makes the music industry less lucrative... Unless you\'re a Justin bieber sort of act. Oh well...

I think in this digital age we live in, artists must find other ways to make up for the money lost due to piracy. For example more touring or other types of merch. I also feel that if I like an artist and download some of their tunes, I will share it with my friends, turning one fan into multiple. As a result when that artist comes to town and myself and those I have turned on to them  go se em they will have sold more tickets and merch at the show than the may have previously.
