Getting music from kazaa and stealing a cd are two different things. There was an actual cost for a company to make a cd. They paid nothing for kazaa's network...


But a company did pay (probably hundreds of thousands of dollars) for studio time, recording equipment, musicians, engineers and producers.

Artists who think kazaa hurts their business are DUMB.


Actually, it's the record companies that think Kazaa hurts their business. It's a very small minority of artists that became rich from cd sales.

quote:
They (artists) need to realize that they should plant high quality versions of their work on kazaa, which is legal because it comes from them


The problem is that unless you're one of a handful of superstar artists, you most likely don't own the rights to your songs. They are owned by the record company. So in most cases, it would be illegal for the artist to plant their work on Kazaa.
