Alright you theives. Let me give you a lesson in what we call freetrade market.
First off, we have supply and demand. They have the music, you want the music. So guess where your getting the music from. Next, we have artists. Yes an srtist is concerned with money, we all are. We all have to eat, sleep and play x box. So guess what, the more money you can make, the more comfortable your life will be, the less work you have to do. Ultimately, anyone not working as a nurse, teacher, or social worker is doing their job for entertainment/money. Don't knock my balls around about that point, yes their are other reasons and other jobs that you don't work for money...now do me a favor and shut the fuck up about it, I'm making a point.
The point is that in a society such as ours, it revolves around money. You work to get it, you spend it to get things you want. This is the way it works...You don't like it, move to China and be a commie.
Now, with that said, the music industry is a business. Artists do not have the means to make an album that will release worldwide, and be marketed correctly so that they can sell the records. So we have business that do that, and use top of the line equiptment and the best producers in the feild to ensure that your sound is as flawless as it should be. Once again, I said should be. Yes music doesn't have to be perfect, but you know what...just shut the fuck up.
So now who do we have here. First we have the artists, then we have artist managers, then we have rodies, then we have producers, costume designers, tour managers, project managers, janators, cleaning ladies, hookers, drug dealers, liquor stores, caterers, AR representitives, exec's, ceo's, owners, investors, stock holders. And that's just to name a few. All these people are going home at night and putting food on the table with money coming in from the record companies. So add that up for one album and what you get is a shit load of money.
Now all these people have a common goal, get more money. Which there is nothing wrong with, it's how our society functions. If you don't like it, your a commie. So you get online, and just steal an album. You save 10 bucks, but thats ten bucks less that the record company is making. Do that over a couple million times, and what you have is a serious decrease in profit.
So here's how it works. If the companies keep making less and less money a year, eventually business men are going to start looking for other work, with more profit. This means less resource, which in turn means that you will see quality or quantity decrease. Now lets say a good number of record execs after ten years of the same shit, with decreasing profits, just stop and move onto something else, what you will get is a bunch of record companies going out of business. So, that means, less music. You still with me. Now if your going to cut the number of business in half, your most likely going to significantly drop the number of units being produced. Therefore, it will become harder for new bands to get deals. Now if your one of these remaining execs who are struggling already, tell me, who are you going to keep? 50 cent raking in a shitload of cash on each album or Fuck your Yankee Blue Jeans that sells maybe a handful of copies?
Now, even though that is an extreme case, none of you have any right to bitch about bad music. Bad music is selling right now. It sells easy. So record companies are loosing profit. What are you gonig to put out? Shit that sells. Your catching on.
So the moral is, the more you steal, the more shit your likely to hear. I'm not even going to get into the moral issues, cause you know what your doing, your just a bunch of fucking theives.
Now onto a personal thrashing. Oruku, your a fucking moron. First off, define monopoly. There are almost 80 different record companies in this world, so fuck you, thats not a monopoly. Thats like saying you don't like phone companies cause their the only ones providing phone service...dipshit statement. Second...Independent Labels? WTF? In the music industry they have a word for independant musicians....they're called waiters. They are independent cause people don't fucking buy thier music! 50 cent sells, get over it for fucks sakes. Shit AC DC is one of the most rockin' bands ever, and they got a record deal, cause it sold at the time. Well, it doesn't sell anymore. If your pissed off cause it's hard to make it in the music industry, then you just need to be beaten. Stop stealing, your a fucking theif, I hope your get sued.
To the rest of you, I won't just blantantly rip into you. It's fucking wrong. Your getting a product that you would normally have to buy, just by clicking a couple of times. And those of you stealing movies. You are the worst. You well I will verbally bash....I hope you die a slow and horrible death and rott in the seventh ring of hell for an eternity.
That's my opinion. I really don't care if you like it or not. I'm just going to give you a little motivation to do whats right.
