Re: accuracy of playing songs

Good point about copyrights laws, Dirty Ed.

With all of the digital piracy that goes on, it's an age where artists are less and less being compensated for what they do. I heard a discussion on the radio a while back about this. At one time, a musician would go on a concert tour to promote a new album, and barely break even on the tour in the hopes of generating album sales. Now it's just the reverse. New music is public overnight, so the musicians must now try to make $$$ with concert ticket sales.

I'm obviously not in the music business, and this could be an over-simplification. The point is: if we want quality art in any genre, we shouldn't be expecting the creators to work for free. They have to eat, too.
