They just don't get it, do they?
I understand publishers wanting to protect their copyright, but why would anyone in the right mind pay Â£15 for an album when they can download it, and slap it on a CD for next to nothing? If you want to reduce piracy, why not instead lower the price of albums, so that they ARE affordable. Not many people have that much money; so understandably they turn to downloads.
What about internet streaming? We don't pay for that. Eg, my brother uses Spotify, a perfectly legal application where he can listen to whatever music he wants (Paid for by advertising) What about Grooveshark? Musgle? Stuff like that, rather than taking a pop at LimeWire, which DOES have some legal uses, also take out The Pirate Bay which is probably the main source of pirating (Of course )
Of course, PB has told publishers to P**s off because they know that P2P downloading and the idea behind it IS legal in Sweden. Morons, rather than wanting to swell your own pocket, think about why album rates are dwindling.
Maybe because there music is so sh1t nobody will admit to paying for it? Justin Beiber, anyone?
