But that is because of many different factors, the first being, HAVE YOU EVER WATCHED CRIBS. I'm pretty sure I can put £14 to better use than John Lennon can.
Ok to start of this large rant of how ridiculous the world is, let me put across some facts first of all
- The RIAA tried to sue Piratebay for 13 million dollars for 34 cases of copy infringement.. If this is true that means that one download, song, movie, game etc is worth £328, 353.
- Your average 8 gig ipod can hold, em, 2,000 songs fair to say? According to the RIAA it is worth $764,704,882. It is the single most valuable object on earth
- If justice was to be brought to everyone who has made an illegal download from pirate-bay, it would be 382 trillion dollars. If you made a stalk of 50 dollar bills to equal that amount it would make a stack high enough to reach the moon... Twice
Now i'm not by any means saying "Let's never pay for a song again", because that would be silly. But I love music, and I love discovering new music, there is no possible way as me as an 18 year old can buy a whole artists back catalogue to see if I like it or not.
But as far as big time musicians go, they have way to much money, and to be fair most dont deserve another penny. But small time bands I always believe in buying their EP's, albums etc. Because they need the money to continue
Wouldn't want the same fate that Reuben (R.I.P) faced for other small time bands.
Conclussion: The new Piracy laws are balls
