You're confusing piracy with plagiarism.

Piracy: Technically stealing, but most people who pirate only do so for personal use and wouldn't have acquired the product at all if piracy wasn't an option, so the creator of the product isn't losing any potential profit.

Plagiarism = Stealing someone's intellectual property and claiming it as your own for personal gain. People who do this are dicks.

When people share music they don't say they wrote and performed the song. Flawed logic!!

Looking at this ******* baby you must. Smarter than you it is dumb **** .

Dude shut the **** up. This guy has a point. Artist aren't bitching about not getting recognition they're bitching about money. We all know who wrote most of those songs. However, when somebody retoasts we're angry about the recognition not any money we've lost.

I dont know if this wasnt clear enough but Im totally sharing givehimthemulks opinion...
He is a 100% right and I support what he said. Just thought doing the Yoda instead of jus toenail clippinging and saying yeah thats right would be a bit funny...appearantly I am not as smart as stewie..
User avatar #76 to #67 - jinjo (02/07/2012) [-]
Bt when you take that song.. that's also taking money out of their pocket. Obviously the Foo isn't losing any sleep over the potential money they're losing, but for a smaller band.. say Illscarlett? They need the money being a not so well known artist.

I used Illscarlet 'cause you probably wouldnt know them I wouldn't think, pretty good Ska-ish bands though,
#81 to #76 - anonomysmonkey (02/07/2012) [-]
Yeah I actually feel bad when I'm about to torrent local band music so I usually pay for it.
User avatar #83 to #81 - jinjo (02/07/2012) [-]
I just prefer to buy my music, I like having a cd collection.

Also I want to be a musician when I'm older, so I have the mantality that I should try to support the industry.
#89 to #83 - anonomysmonkey (02/07/2012) [-]
Yeah I don't have a problem with artists making money but the music industry is kind of a monster. Like how they've helped slowly bring copyright from 25 years to life of the author + 70 years and make the enforcement of copyright laws so strict. How they've destroyed families with lawsuits. It disgusts me that it's no longer about music but about money.
User avatar #97 to #89 - jinjo (02/07/2012) [-]
Yup. And 'artists' that are marketable :/

You definitely have a point there, but I think that there are 2 points where money isn't that big of a problem: 1) when your starting out: It's better and easier to have your music spread around for free , rather than selling songs nobody likes, not making a profit, possibly losing money, and being disappointed. 2) When you are a big name band with millions of dollars already and you approve of the 1st point (i.e. Dave Grohl)

That's got to be the stupidest ******* post I've ever seen. so your saying:

>when the band is small, they should be giving out music for free, so i'm not going to pay
>once the band is big, they're a big name, they already make a bunch of money, so im not going to pay.

SO if you follow both of those statements, then how the **** does anybody make any money? It doesn't ******* make sense you ignorant idiot.

Glad someone else could see the ridiculous logic applied here.
User avatar #180 to #76 - banjofrank (02/07/2012) [-]
you should do a little research into how much money an artist gets from an album sale. An albm that you pay 10-15 dollars for, the artist will typically get around 1 dollar, while the remaining goes to the record label. If you want to be a musician, you'll need to make your money from live music, which I think is fair. Who decided that musicians, the one group of people who get to make their living doing what they love, should be paid to do so when everyone else has to slave at jobs they hate for **** pay. I say this as both a minimum wage employee and also as a working musician. If I can ever make enough to keep enough to keep a roof over my head and a few dollars on the side from music, I'll literally be living the dream, but you need to keep working, same as any other job.

I know that, that's basic knowledge. But still, that's money out of their pocket, that fact remains.

And like I said, Foo Fighters, Metllica, Red Hot Chili Peppers etc. aren't really affected by that. They're huge bands, they get the opportunities to play big shows, they're known enough to go platinum in multiple countries in a week.

Illscarlett (example I'm using) don't get the opportunity to play the ACC, or Rock in Rio, or Rock AM Ring. Their record sales affect they're income a lot more than they affect bigger bands. That dollar between those five being ripped from them when they don't sell many records as a smaller band, is a lot.

If a band is good, and put on a good live show, they'll be able to get by. If they're not, then they're just not working hard enough, or are possibly just bad songwriters. Being a musician means that you pay your dues on the way up, there's alot of sleeping in vans, playing **** shows where nobody knows you, but if you do well, love the music and enjoy yourself and can still manage to sell a few cds, next time you come back you'll get to play a slightly bigger venue. As a musician, you should just be buzzing that people like your music enough to want to listen to it. The record industry structure is flawed in a big way anyway. Given the choice people will give their money to the artist directly, but we're just not comfortable paying off some dickweed in a suit who knows nothing about music. I cite as an example here Radiohead's Album "In Rainbows" which they allowed the customer to name their own price and the majority of people were happy to pay normal cost because they knew it was going to the artist directly. Another example, albeit from a different area of showbiz is Comedian Louis CK's latest show which he financed himself and asked people to pay him directly. he made over 1 million dollars (most of which he gave away cause he's a ******* hero). I guess my point is this, as long as we're being asked to pay people who have nothing to do with the creative process, we're gonna pirate, but it's ok cause we're still happy to pay good hard cash to see the bands live when they tour. I haven't paid a cent for Explosions in the Sky's cd's, but I've gone to see them live 6 times at a cost of over 250 euro. I saw them last month in Belfast. I'll happily pay to see them again and I'll download any new material without the slightest of guilt.

Honestly, I personally find it flattering when someone retoasts something I made, because it means they liked it enough to retoast it. It's not like I loose anything from them doing it.

Allow me to explain.   
When you download something mainstream, You dont praise the filesharer for the work.   
When you take something that someone else made and say its yours.   
You're a douche.
