Study Suggests Music Industry Embrace Piracy

Chiasmus_ Re:It's good to have wants... (293 comments)

That you spend time downloading songs for your pleasure shows that they have much more value than you want to pay for it.

That doesn't follow at all. That he spends time downloading the song shows that the songs have enough value to be worth downloading.

Which isn't much.

Chiasmus Credo

Chiasmus_ Chiasmus_ writes  |  more than 11 years ago

As an amateur musician and amateur programmer, these are my five core beliefs:

1. Information, including recordings, should not be withheld for financial reasons.
2. Society generally benefits as information becomes more free.
3. It is wrong to sabotage new technologies, even when they conflict with a business model.
4. Copyright violation is not the equivalent of theft.
5. Unjust laws should not be obeyed.

Consider them nailed to the church door. If anyone wants to dispute them, you know where to find me.
