I have commonly over my years ( I'm 45 ) bought cassettes and cd's , just to make copies for my self , and then trade them with friends , or the local CD Exchange store - just to repeat the proscess again .
As the OWNER of the media NOBODY can tell me what I can or cant do with it .
No one can tell me I cant sell or trade it . If this is illegal WHY are there so many exchange stores profiting from cd bartering , they arent paying revenues to the recording industry are they ? Surely this is digital media . The analog (tapes) stuff isnt an issue , but 2/3 of all my older stuff came from tapes , and off the radio !!!
HA HA HA - Eat that industry guru's!!!
Now tell me how a judge can prosecute us for file sharing through our PC's , but we can swap the actuall cd's physicaly and save them in our pc drives ???
Is my IQ dropping or what???
Are any exchange stores being sued ?
Boycott ?? I havent paid for music in 25 years !!! (well-ok , but less than $200.00)
I share over 100 full albums on kazaa , and have swapped over 500 physicaly .
Any comments ???
