    dear musicians, do something with rapidshare and other sites like rs, they steal from you, but leave the kids who use p2p with their friends to find new music alone! we all know how it is like, the more you download, the more you buy, it really works like that. and give us opportunities not to use rapidshare, we need more places where we can buy mp3s – i bought Bjork’s CD the other day and then found out that the digital version on Nokia Music Strore is more expensive than a CD!

    Ed, you’ve got to realize that people want new digital formats that they can carry around with them containing their favourite music. The way that iTunes (for instance) is currently distributing digital formats is inconvenient for the average user. Music has always been about sharing and turning other people onto new music, it’s the way it grows. If musicians can connect with these fans, they can turn them into benefactors using different means. You just need to discover what those are.

    i keep on repeating myself on that topic, but id’ never buy any record or go to any show without file-sharing… so many of us wouldn’t.

    you rather them completely cut off your internet or throttle your bandwidth on sharing files…?Radiohead, i think, actually supports filesharing. They don’t release DVDs – they know theres entire concerts up on youtube at your convenience. Paying was optional for In Rainbows, and These are my Twisted Words was mysteriously leaked before officially released (free).I think Ed is just trying to support filesharing, but at the same time try to make up a compromise so the boss people are happy.

    Lily Allen who, on her own website, illegally uploaded and hosted music mixes containing songs she had no rights to? And further plagiarised when she word-for-word presented someone else’s opinion as her own on her blog, without citation? And then cried and closer her blog when she was found out?Cry harder.
