Here is one comment from one of my reader...please read.
those people want only your money. as i told before their thoughts are untrue.
Hi, I just wanted to comment on the ridiculous claims that these people think they can make..
ALL independent scientific research done proves that downloads have absolutely no impact on CD sales.
I'll post you some links.. there are plenty of links in the articles I will post.
Studies: music industry overstating threat of P2P piracy
Canadian report finds P2P might sell more CDs
Piracy losses fabricated
The Effect of File Sharing on Record Sales: An Empirical Analysis (pdf file with the full study is still available on some of the links)
Yet another study suggests file sharing has no impact on CD sales
Piracy stats don't add up
There is plenty more available if you do some targeted searching on
These people are no better than the lying creeps in the White House and Congress, all they care about is their own self-interest. All they have is campaigns of lies and misinformation.
Feel free to spread this information to all other prog blogs to stop the bullshit of these self-righteous pricks.
There is NO independent scientific evidence for the RIAA claim that downloading would hurt CD sales.
Of course the studies bought by the RIAA will fraudulently try to "prove" the opposite.
What do you expect? The truth from the maffia?
here is another great link
Steve Albini, a music insider, producer and musician and his thoughts about file sharing...
Anybody in the music industry claiming they're protecting artists is like the maffia claiming they're protecting family values.
Their business model is as outdated as any relic from the stone age and all they have left is their evangelising moral and ethical crusades. "Thou shalt not steal" is the first rule in their own "Honour amongst thieves". Nobody has ever ripped off the artists any more than all the parasites in the industry, and labels come first in line. progrockrecords is no better.
It's corporate fascism at work. If they don't want to, or can not, adjust to the new situation as it is, they should just go extinct. And they will. The sooner the better.
