Thank you, kindly. My earned royalties on this thread are now up to 7.11!
Nearly time to retire comfortably.

I wasn't planning on it. But if I do in the future, I will do the appropriate copyright search to see who is the legal owner and see if I can get written permission to share from said owner.

My initial search will be slow and tedious, seeing as how there are no owner and/or copyright details listed in the properties section of the file.

But for any government copyright officials monitoring this thread, rest assured that I have only started my due diligence work, and there is no need to maintain a record of my IP address at this time.

from a $15,99 album the artist gets $1.60 the rest is overhead

one of the reasons why a lot of artists are now releasing content directly to the web
Excellent point Nigel. That hadn't occurred to me. Should have done my homework.

People pirate because they are cheap (or would rather spend their money elsewhere), and think that companies and artists are way too overpaid as it is. Are you SERIOUSLY going to suggest that if there was no "crap" or there had never been any "crap", that pirating would not still be an issue? Get real. That's just an attempt to justify behavior.

Ignorance of the law has never been a legal defense. But the obvious issue is putting it on the internet to share with the whole world as opposed to a few circle of friends/families. It's the same theory as to why police pull you over if you go 10 miles over the limit, but ignore you if you go 5 miles over. They go after the worse offenders. Going 5 over is still breaking the law.

When it comes to images that I want to use in my blog, found via Bing or Google image search, I download the image to my computer and upload to the blog, unless marked with a copyright.

However, I also have a saved image that I really liked and thought I would want to use to accompany a future blog post. Because the image was identified as a photo created by the author, I wrote to the person and asked permission to use it and received permission. I haven't used it yet but have saved the e-mail providing permission.

Actually, it's not because they go after the "big fish". There is a cushion to account for calibration error of your speedometer.

Nonsense. I know parts of a certain metro area where you can speed by the state trooper in the medium at 10 miles over the limit and they don't blink an eye. In fact if you aren't going 10 over, you're likely to get bump drafted as if you were in a Nascar race.

Closing in on 20 pages.

So...based on that theory...it's ok not to pay you if you are poor at your job, have a bad day, etc?

That's why I use a pay service that allows you to download and pay per song.

itunes, Napster, etc. Pay for only the songs you like, not an album with 2-4 good songs and the rest crap...
This part i do agree on why buy the full album you are better off taking a few songs here and thiere 99cents isnt much and alot of time you get a few for just 99 cent most of the people who make albums songs or what ever more of them are 15 min flashes ina frying pan and the unknowing consumer teen ,adult will purchase the 2 song at best album and is stuck with it because of the return clause

which in turn would push people to pirate just the same why drop 15 bucks on a 2 songs on a 1-1/2 hour album

not that it is right but i have to say this is the first real point i can see someone downloading with out buying the whole real copy cause who wants to waste money like that,that could be a life saving meal there

now please don't take what im saying in a badway just pushing someone's valid point on the music industry it sucks point blank if they had something worth seeling people wouldnt do it lol just a opinion

Don't worry noob i don't need a bullhorn to say this hahaha

What form is that?
Mostly trance, not mainstream, small time artists, not very big shot but make superb music.
