QuoteYes, downloading music is against the law and very wrong, especially when done to small artists like Buckethead. It is disgraceful. However, downloading a fucking Beatles album isn\'t morally wrong. They\'re all dead.
QuoteYo Keagan, you should get your facts straight. This is not a $200 album or cd. It is 13 cds that are $20 bucks apiece. If someone cant afford $20 for cd, they can get a job.
QuoteGet your facts right before you run your mouth.Theres also a diffirence of downloading to hear what someone sounds like, compared to 13 cds. Really if its 2 songs or somthing and it sparks your intrest to buy more great. But downloading 13 cds in one big package isnt "getting a taste". Basicly what you said is pure ignorance.
QuoteI\'ve downloaded past albums, but only because they were out of print. I\'m pretty sure that\'s legal. Or so says the .tk board.

Quotehaaa, yes, snubnog + bigbri - that beatles comment IS funny!!
Quotetorrenting/sharing copyrighted material is ALWAYS wrong. and we actually managed last night to get at least one seeder who put the 13 wedges set on a private torrent site to take it down. there is a BIG discussion over at the tk board about the pro´s and con´s of filesharing. so i just post what i said there.copyright is a fact. copyright infringement is illegal.there is no way to take on that with a philosophical / ethical discourse."its a crime. period.BUT it is a big difference on how filesharing affects the single artist.the "big" ones could care less, but an independent artist, like buckethead and travis have a real financial disadvantage.it is practically stealing from their pocket. instead of beeing happy for bucket, that a musician of his quality can make a living off of his music and still stay as independent as possible, people go and give away HIS work for free!and sure I dont believe all the "its for the sake of spreading his music" apologies.if someone torrents 25 official buckethead releases at once, do you really think many folks who dl this, go then and buy all this music once again online or in a store just to own the cd?any artist like bucket depends on record sales even more than the folks you see on the music channels.just look at the CSS - repressing : they are willing to start this whole action for 50(!) preorders.does this give you a picture on what financial level independent musicians operate?sure, many of you are very young and grew up with filesharing as a cool thing. so its not about to condemn a person. its all about making you think about what youre doing. act responsible. support your artist by BUYING his work. and dont make yourself believe filesharing copyrighted material helps any independent artist in the long run.no, it will kill them. thats the fact.no record sales - no money comes in - no money to live - no money for a new record...end of career..... back to a shitty day job and play music with bots just on the weekend.
