ill admit i download music for free but why come after a kid who downloads a song a week. they shouldnt crack down on the downloaders but the uploaders. i NEVER upload.
true! without the uploaders there wouldnt even be illegal stuff to download, ie: no piracy. cracking down on people who download a few mp3's is just wasted time and money. ....i dont want them to crack down on anything though

same. nearly 10 for the latest cd's and half the tracks are crap. i think its also the convenience of sitting at home and downloading an album quicker than going to the shops

i would usually download a few of the tracks of an album, not the whole album , also you are soving the environment , think of all the plastic thatwould be saved and paper in cd inserts

well, those are good arguments but you can use itunes, or some thing on walmarts website, or the zune player music store, to download single songs for $.99, but i'm still voting for not shutting down P2P's lol

If you can actually name ONE person who lost their job due to pirating I'll stop. Until these, "thousands and thousands" of peopel who apparently lost their jobs due to pirating are actually named, then I'll take that as one BS statistic.

So, if you can NAME just ONE person who lost their job due to pirating, then sure, maybe I'll stop...

EDIT: To counter the lost jobs to pirating. Pirating has got millions of people jobs, P2P companies need workers...so in the end, it balances out. So why complain? Oh, and their checks get taxed too.

Hell, piracy literally built Romania. Becides, artists hardly make money from album sales anyways, it's the publishers and record labels that make the big bucks.
