Most artists don't care about MP3's on the net, mainly because they get very little in royalties from the sale of CDs. Most artists money comes from concerts and merchandise. The recording companies are against file sharing because then they don't get any money from the deal.

I think that downloading music is bad because it does affect the artists and the producers...everytime that you download a CD you are stealing from the artist and thats just not fair...

i'm currently doing a project on the pros and cons of downloading music. can anyone give me some pointers? besides the obvious, record companies and artists losing money, are there other reasons for not downloading music? does n e one not download for moral/ethical reasons?
besides the record companies and artists and us, the "consumers", are there other people affected by this downloading?
why else besides the music being free do people decide to download?

it would b greatly appreciated if i got some replies on this matter. for both the project and my personal curiosity.

When I find out about a cool song on MTV or something like that, I'll download that song, or one from that same CD.  If I like it, I'll delete the file, and go buy the CD, that's what I do.

plz help me on my project of why music is bad, the only thing i know is that music form the internet has viruses and takes too long for downlading it. music also isn't good quality.more and more cds are being copied when they are not supposed to be so the artist really get pissed off about this because they loose a lot of money if you download music. this concludes to music from the internet is bad because its just not fiar for the artist and the producers but it has other bad side affects as well like viruses, time and the language that the song has (BAD!)

Whether downloading music is good or bad will eventually become a moot point. As well get more technologically advanced, more products will be for free. Thanks to networking and the internet, a lot of  products can be obtained for free (including music, software, movies, etc.). Eventually, everything will be for free (legally) when we are at a point where machines and computers do all the work and we can have a true paradise where no one has to earn a living anymore.

Actualy the tend is towards increaseing capatalism.
Downloading music is ilegal, beacuse it is technicaly theft. Although many musicians got into it for the joy of doing music, rather than the money.
I tend to buy CD's now I have a job and can actualy aford them.

Well bascialy, the people who create music, the artists, the writers etc. bascicaly own the music, and through the production companys they sell the music to the company, so when you download the music it is like you are stealing the music from them. This is of greater concern of the record companys becuase they get the biggest peice of the pie. The artists make alot of there money from concerts and merchandise. Need more of an explanation? if you do it may take me a bit of time to think about it.

I think that the majority of the artists who have their music downloaded are talentless corporate whores such as Britney Spears. It's hard for me to care that such people may not be able to afford an extra gold plated toilet in their mansion.

For smaller bands, having their music downloaded, even for free, can be a positive thing. Most of the people who listen to such bands are the type who will go and buy a CD if they like the download.

Hmmm, let's see.  Musician.  Get's paid for their music.  People steal the music, musician's don't get paid....

Hmmm, let's see.  Baker.  Get's paid for bread.   Would you go into the baker's shop and steal a loaf of bread?  Well, some of you might, but I don't think you'd agree that it was right.


For those of you who "justify" it by saying it's only the "recording companies" who are really getting stiffed, remember this.  As music theft cuts more and more into a recording companies bottom line the less they can afford to take a gamble on lesser known talent.  You're actually screwing over the small guy by making it that much harder for him to get a break.  After all, if I'm going to put money down on someone and I know people are going to steal some of the "product" I'm going to be more likely to put it on the "guaranteed" guy where I know I'll at least get some of it back as opposed to the longshot who might not even break even without counting the thefts.

Anyone seen my two cents?

downloading music is just a natural step in the evolution of our increasingly complex social system.  people get tired of having to shell out so many bucks to buy music, also it is so much easier just to download it than to go to the store and buy something you aren't even sure you'll like.  besides, the amount of people who only download music is a small fraction of the listeners.  a lot of the fall in music sales is simply because labels are signing so many crappy bands without even knowing it.  and most of the money spent on a cd goes to the company instead of to the actual band.  i'd rather download a cd and send 5 bucks to the band than buy it from a store.

and there's no way you're going to stop everyone from downloading.  every method to encrypt cd's has been, and continues to be cracked by amature software hacks.  and when 14 year old girls and old granny's start getting sued by the RIAA for downloading music, people begin to wonder who really is the victim here.

So when people do something they know is illegal we should just look the other way because "everyone is doing it"?  Are you saying that anything that becomes socially acceptable should become legal?  What ever happened to the concept of right and wrong?

the concept of right and wrong is only based on what the majority thinks.  if downloading continues and the majority accepts or even doesnt care about it, then it isn't wrong.  besides, it is probably a good thing.  downloaders will cause the music industry to be more picky of what they produce and will cause some bands to put out their own music.  maybe we can get rid of some of the corporate corruption of a beautiful art.  the RIAA is a major waste of funds and is really the criminal in this fight.

I disagree.  If the majority decide to believe in "survival of the fittest" and the majority starts going around killing off the weak and "undeserving" then I still hold to the fact that it is wrong.  Since when does the "majority" get to decide things.  After all, the majority of the United States is (if you include the denominations) Christian.  Does that mean they get to decide?  The majority of alot of other nations is Islamic.  Do they get to decide?  It wasn't too long ago that the concept of absolute right and wrong wasn't even questioned.  By that understanding then slavery wasn't wrong a few hundred years ago as the "majority" practiced it.  Kicking the Indians off their own property wasn't wrong (it's not like they started a war against us or anything).  Throwing Christians into the gladiator arenas wasn't wrong.  Burning heretics (and of course, the ruling religion gets to pick who heretics are) at the stake wasn't wrong.  The Crusades weren't wrong.  Keeping women from voting wasn't wrong.  And, since the majority of the US is Christian, book burning, censorship (sp?), barring of evolution, etc. aren't wrong in the classroom.  It's good to know right and wrong gets to be voted on.

but it all depends on what you are trying to achieve.  morals are different in different peoples' eyes.  tell me, why do you think it would be wrong if we started killing off all the weak members of society?  why should we not do this?  why are we not doing this right now?

slavery wasnt wrong, kicking the native americans out wasn't wrong; they were just horrible, pointless things to do.  it occured because of a feeling of difference, instead of a feeling of brotherhood.  it was not because the colonists were evil.

but i still stand in saying that the majority decides what is right and wrong.  and i do not mean they decide what you should think is right and wrong, they decide what is done about it.  the majority puts things in action.  an individual can guide the majority, but ultimately, it is the majority that chooses.  in america, the majority is christian, that is why our laws are based loosely on christian morals, and not islamic morals, or buddhist morals.  the collective sense of right and wrong in our nation includes that we should not do concsious harm to others.  but we still unknowingly do harm to others.

The main point is, downloading music is bad..
It's illegal and it's violating the copyright laws.
It's stated in the law that once a music is copyrighted, direct and accurate permission must be done by the distributor.
And just simply downloading it will not make things fair, it is unjust for the recording company cause their hardwork or perspiration must be payed off by money and not by charity works...

I think that companys should allow you to download songs for free, because if it gets very popular all you have to do to make money is get adds. The software for downloading the songs may be expensive, but if it gets to high just charge the companys more money to place adds, that leavs us both happy

The situation is as follows:

People download song, if companies like it or not.
No security so far has been able to stop the downloading of music, of the newest popular songs and albums.

It is in general, a market issue, the market changes constantly and the companies selling their products on the market have to constantly be innovative to sell it in an ever changing environment.

What distributors need to do, is stop crying and build up a system that allows them to use the power of downloading. I know that if I can download sample (low quality) songs from an artist's website, check them out, and like them, that I will go and buy a high quality CD version as well.

But right now, distributors are busy trying to hide away new cd's and are trying to pound any download point into the ground, but the rate of new download options is growing faster than they can pound.

They need to build a system that pushes people to download specific content for free, and allow them access to songs for a specific price, and put that all in a package that:

1. Is easily accesible.
2. Is easily downloadable.
3. Can give extra perks, acces to specific content.
4. Combines it with other music, buy this now, get this other one 50% off, get the whole collection for 40% reduced price online, etc etc.

There are ways for a new album to sell, but a distributor just needs to maximize selling potential
