    Join RIAA Boycott

    I believe the only leverage that individuals have in the RIAA/file sharing arena, is a boycott of music CD's. With that in mind, I pledge to my fellow TZ members that I will not purchase a music CD for a period of six months or until the RIAA fully retreats from the harassment tactics that it is currently using. Join me by adding a post saying "ADD ME TO YOUR LIST".

    Add me to your list

    I haven't bought cd's since high school...Partly for the reason that there hasn't been any good bands out there that make me "want" to go out and buy the cd. Anyways, you buy the cd for a song and the rest are crude anyways.

    Well I've purchased 1 music CD recently, it was by a local artist. It cost half as much as international artists' CD's. Don't have any plans of buying any more in the near future.

    That would be the MPAA in charge of DVD's.

    yeah I think DVD's are ok. CDs, MDs tapes, Records, 8-track (are these even produced?), reel2reel audio, etc.. are no good.

    as a musician I would like to say that my career is doomed and I will never be a millionaire since everyone and their grand parents a downloading these crappy songs and no longer buying them.

    anyone who says that they only buy the songs that they like are missing the point and have opted to demand convenience.

    if you listen to the radio you will have to wait to hear something you like. After listening to the songs over a few weeks you might like it more. The commercial industry are paying the artists and record companies for the right to have you listen to the songs.

    but on the internet.....

    you can download any crappy song you like and i bet most people keep it on their hard drives or storage discs.

    this will prevent you from even considering purchasing this crappy artists music yet you still hear it whenever you want and the artist dissapears and the commercial industry puts these guys on the back burner and another career has ended and the artist goes in to debt.

    it is way to easy for everyone to sample high quality music and keep it forever.

    who is stupid/rich enough to pay for something they already have?

    every song in the world that I heard once I don't like. bottom line.

    people are not stealing the hard product( the manufactured cd, cover and sleaves. )

    So we are not stealing something out of a music store. and therefore not guilty of theft.

    we are listening to a copy of music that has been originally purchased by someone who has chosen to share with others over the internet like a radio.

    RIAA is wrong at what they are doing and they are right at trying to protect the assests of a trillion dollar industry that will collapse when the young 12 year olds grow older and never buy music again because they can always find a friend on the internet ho can lend it to them for free whenever they want.


    their is no other way to look at that.
