    Kimieri Frank Actually that is not strictly true, musicians do start to make money after the cost of production has been recovered, but on average the royalty payment an artist receives from a record label is between 8 to 15c an album, an artist (or band) can expect to see $150,000 from a platinum sale, and that's before the label has recovered their money. so for a small band that doesn't have the full weight of a label behind them it can be rather damaging.

    Kimieri Frank I'm aware, which is why the ARTISTS usually encourage the "theft", its the SINGERS, the mindless barbies and kens who think that they'll get more money if people stop "stealing", or the ones who are forced by their contracts to say pirating is bad. In reality, its just free advertising.

    Okay, I can see that, but as someone who pirates, I can honestly say that I do support, monetarily, the bands I "steal" from. Especially if they aren't "big" yet. If I continue to rip their stuff, I send the band a money order, $2 for every song I download.

    Actually it's the companies in charge of the artists. For most musical artists, they only make money by performances. The CD money, no matter who it is, goes to the COMPANY that OWNS the singer's rights. Sick and twisted but true.

    Eric Kramer that's mighty noble of you! the only time i pirate is when my only option is to buy the album from itunes, else I use grooveshark or buy the CD, unfortunately if I was to pay $2 for every track I'd ever downloaded I'd owe a lot of money, however I am slowly legitimizing my library. oh also if the artist is dead I have no problem downloading xD
