I guess I’m showing my age, but I still prefer to buy music to copying it. I do feel that if I buy a CD, I should have the right to make a copy for my own use. Computers and IPods have made this a common practice. When I was in college, I could buy an LP for $2. Now CD’s will cost $14. I want to know who gets the majority of the money. The artist that created it, or the corporation that distributes it. This is the problem I have with the law. It does not differentiate between the two.
Ok, Copyright issues are sticky and confusing and everyone has their side of the story, but we do need to be able create and make a living as well as use other media as inspiration. So the answer is to pay attention to the laws and understand them well.
