After a recent discussion with my sis-in-law about burning your own “mix” CD’s from your friend’s originals, I feel it’s time to post my thoughts for everyone to read. I don’t understand how people can’t see the error in their logic. My favorite is, but I just want one song from this artist, I don’t like all of their stuff. Why should I have to buy the entire album. My response, for the same reason it’s still stealing for me to take one article of clothing from 7 different stores to make one great outfit. Or, how about, they make enough money. I see, and how many millions of other people would look at you and think, “They make enough money, I’m just going to steal their car anyway.” Here it is, laid out. Regardless of the value you’re putting on something, taking something (including copying) that’s not yours is theft! Deal with it and stop trying to reason away your logic for why it’s okay.
Someone please respond, I want to know if at least one person agrees with me on this one.
