|What should be done to stop piracy?
Put everything on "Flash Drives" that can only be activated by the purchase reciept with an activation code...
Nothing, I'd be a hypocrite if I were to say otherwise. I wouldn't mind if people started to rip my music off the internet because at least I'll know that people like it. The money's in touring anyway, it always has been. £50 for a ticket to see Madonna, 10,000 capacity and she does 12 shows in a month? MTV has shown on a number of occasions that the music industry has no problem showering its most beloved in money.
They should take off the websites that let you download illeagle
I think we have gone way past the point where we can do anything to stop it and may as well accept it for the reality that it is, embrace it and find ways to make it work for us instead.
Fans should financially support the musicians that work hard to entertain them. That's all.
you can't stop piracy, you can only educate people in terms of the affect it has on artists incomes
I really don't have the answer for that. Sorry!
I think it has no more solution, we must give priority to the internet in moments like this
iTunes, iPods, mp3 players. I know, I sound crazy. But ever since we made those we've taken away the notion that it's cool to buy CD's. Why would you not wanna have a CD full of artwork and music? It's nuts that these days songs are just mp3 files that someone just randomly downloads when they want to hear it. Put the interest back into music by taking away iPods/mp3 players (which will never happen but still..) that's where piracy will stop. By making people want the music again.
Nothing. Internet Piracy Kicks Ass. To quote a great man - "If you've sold 50million records, and you have 50million fuckin' dollars... and you're bitching about pennies... FUCK YOU, man!" (Dave Grohl, on Lars Ulrich).
Tougher laws and penalties I think would slow the trend.
Trying to stop piracy is almost as idiotic as trying to continue the war on drugs.
Piracy should NOT be stopped. Ideas in music should be spread without the gagging of laws to repress freedom. Fuck money and pop stars agendas to keep their multi-million dollar mansions.
Nothing. It helps the music spread. Real fans still buy CDs.
Piracy has always existed in music. Look at the time that had turntables and cassette decks in every home. Who had a vinyl copied for a friend who could not purchase. I do not condemn it, because it is a way to spread the sound, show more people that sound exists. The same happens today with the mp3, is basically the same thing, and here in Brazil we have a problem, because cd's and dvd's / blu-ray discs are expensive, a headbanger not afford buy a CD and a DVD a band because the CD costs an average of 40 reais, and the DVD costs 70 reais, and it weighs a lot in my pocket, I know what it is, then I think anyone who can buy the discs, supports the metal bands, but who can not, we understand the important thing is to listen, hear and bang your head!
