  • New Law Forbids Unreleased Disney Music Distribution

    Here's a problem for ya if you collect Disney music files (the ones that aren't normally available to buy... old horizons loops and such.

    The president yesterday signed a law setting tough penalties for anyone caught distributing a movie or song prior to its commercial release.

    You have all been warned I suppose. Heh heh.

      The stuff was copyrighted anyway, so it's not like it means much.

        Pfft.

        Like that's going to scare anyone. If the RIAA and the MPAA can't scare off people with their lawsuits, what makes you think another law is going to?

        When music doesn't cost $17 for a cd, maybe then the pirating and sharing will diminish to the point where it doesn't affect them as much. Same for movies. Hopefully.

          True that, I don't even think that artists make much money off of their CDs anyway. Most of their revenue comes from concerts and such.

              Awww yes the old "I steal cause its expensive clause" and the record company says " I make it expensive cause you steal" and the rest of law bidding Itunes buying, DVD collecting, CD purchasing people pay for the theft.

                This wasn't the point I was making. And I never said that.

                I made two points:

                1. That no one is scaring off the pirates - even with lawsuits. Laws and copy protection so far have done nothing to chase off illegal duplication of music and movies.

                2. That the price of a cd is too much - and people know it. Most people will pay it. Some won't. I don't think you should have to.

                The recording companies have never justified why CDs cost so much. But at least I have a better alternative than buying a whole CD. I'll stick to buying my songs one at a time, thanks. I'd rather pay $3 for 3 songs I like off of an album instead of the whole $17.

                  I just don't listen to music enough to make it worth my money. I'll gladly spend the money on a DVD over most CDs. (So it's a good thing Sam Goody is on my side of the mall and Suncoast is far away!) I usually buy Disney CDs when they clearance them out to $5 in the stores. They did that with Brother Bear, Home on the Range, 101 Dalmations, Lilo + Stitch, Finding Nemo, and others. You just have to find the sale I guess?

                    Old Horizons loops were commercially released. Just not in CD format.

                    Otherwise, how would we know about them? If it was released once, even for just an hour, it was released. Park music played in the Park. If we paid to get into the Park, the music that played in the Park we paid to get into could be considered "commercially released".
                    My fondest memory of Walt Disney was the day Disneyland opened....I was standing next to him - I was 12 years old - he was looking at the gate where people were coming through, he had his hands behind his back, he had a grin from ear to ear, but you could see the lump in his throat and the tear coming down his cheek because his dream had been realized. -- Mouseketeer Sharon Baird, "Mouseke-Memories", Walt Disney Treasures: The Mickey Mouse Club

                      Not to worry, but don't steal either. Signed by the same man who still can't find Osama Bin Laden. It's nice to know that now they can re prioritize toward those who are downloading Catwoman.

                        I thought itunes offered $10 for a whole CD now... or was that napster....

                        (even with the price of CDs getting cheaper.. what 50cents a disk and burniong and expensive... yet how mch does the artists get of that... lower the price of good artists.. and you will see the masses buy them more..

                          I've heard that Napster offers songs to download but the files are encoded so you can't burn them onto a CD & if you want to burn songs onto CD it costs extra.

                          Feh.

                              Yeah, iTunes is supposed to let you burn CDs with the songs you buy.
