Ignorant monkey fucks..I think not...yes you work hard to become sucessful, as do we all, so you are not alone there... (point.. mute) as for where will your money come from. well, if your any good, people will go to your concerts (paid for by the fans who go to your concerts)money in your pocket. t-shirt sales and misc other items with your bands signature on them...money in your pocket... appearances paid for by advertisers..money in your pocket...oh ya.. the cd's in the stores...you have to buy them before you can swap them... money in your pocket..computer...$1500.00 example..isp.. $30.00 and misc other crap you need to access the p2p programs...$50.00 (guessing) so how are we getting this for free and where are you losing money? not everyone in the world owns a computer and has access to the file swapping so they will be out there buying your cd's... (that's you making money) so how are you losing? everyone is making money in this business.. they just may not be able to afford the 50 million dollar mansion and will have to settle for the 20 million dollar mansion, do I feel bad for them..hell no !!!! there will always be music and music swapping no matter what happens with this suit.. and yes, there will always be cd's being made too.. Just depends on how good you are and if the world wants to hear your music.. so, in closing, everyone in the music business needs to stop whining about the all mighty dollar and listen to the people who buy the product and lower the prices of the cd's and give up on this rediculous suit. If the swappers really wanted to make a statement.. they could always boycott the music industry and then where will they be... no money for them and no money for you... guess where not all that bad now are we... we are putting the money in your pockets so why not think about the people who make you famous... that would be us.. the file swappers who enjoy and buy! your music! Gotta buy it to swap it!!! an ignorant monkey..signing off....GO SWAPPERS!
