    Just like copyright laws are to the millions on P2P sharing, and Torrent seeders...

    The scary thing about this is that you could get up to three years in prison for sharing prerelease media. This is serious business.

    Copyright infringement is not theft. It is copyright infringement. I'm just being legally persnickity here, but in a court setting you'll find they're not the same thing.

    The sad thing is that copyright was invented to protect small inventors from being ransacked by large corporations, and now it's being used for the opposite.

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

    Feh.

    iTunes should burn to CD.....

    $10 a CD.. $1 for a song...

    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 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..

    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.

    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".

    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?

    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.

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

    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.
