Many game developers, computer programmers and musicians are using a new video to try and pursuade people not to copy their material...

AND IT IS FUNNY AS ALL FREAKIN HELL!

My girlfriend has been sound asleep on the floor since 8pm, as she is really tanked up on vodka...after watching that i laughed so hard and loud i woke her up out of a drunken stupor...In order to wake up someone who is drunk, you gotta laugh damn hard...

Yeah, like those cheesy safety videos...

At work we had to watch one about selling alcohol to minors....

NOW THAT WAS CHEASY... They had employees that actually worked with us who were 30 in the video acting as minors trying to buy liquor...

Back in school they would make us watch those movies about wearing bike helmets, and we would just laugh through them...

Then later on in HS when we had to watch those sex movies we laughed through those even harder...

I dont copy games, as i dont feel guilty dishing out 50 bucks to the companies, as i know alot of hard work and college education goes into making a video game... And for the most part the developer's arent filthy rich.

EDITED.....i mean some singer sits in a recording studio and tries to sing, even though a computer does most the singing for him, and he makes a billion bucks on it, then he expects me to pay him more for his CD? Musicians should sing and play because they love music, not so they can have a mansion and an escalade and a 50 inch JVC with surround sound in every room...

Now if a like a band in General, like Dave Matthews or Lifehouse, ill buy their CD, because i like all their songs, but for example, Nelly, i only like Country Grammer, so im not going to pay 30 bucks for a CD.

Anyway, i think that the recording industry needs to adapt and work with the consumers instead of suing them.*****EDITED****

I wouldnt mind paying 3 bucks a month for music downloading, as if you figure 6 billion people are downloading music, and if each person pays like 2 or 3 bucks a month, thats more than enough for the artists and bandsa nd producers.

I much rather pay a small price each month than 30 bucks everytime a new CD comes out.

its definitely the "most participated in illegal activity" according to the RIAA. Technically i can find ways its not illegal, but lawyers won't listen to me /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif lol.

Here's how a typical record deal works today. One of the 5 biggies (Warner,Sony,Universal,EMI, and BMG) approaches an up-and-coming band and offers to put 100,000 into cutting a record and promoting it. The company will own the masters and all copyrights associated with them.

The lucky band will get 10% of the sales. Not a great deal, but most unknown bands would give their collective souls for a chance at the big time. Oh, and there are "recoupables." These are expenses such as recording, manufacturing, promotion, and touring. They are recouped by the record company from the band's 10% - which means that the label puts the money up front, but the band still winds up paying for everything.

A record must sell half a million copies before the band members see any money. Then, their profit is only about a dollar a record on something you and I would pay $15-$20 for.

If the band doesn't like that deal they are free to go to one of the remaining other four companies, who'll offer more of the same. What a band-even a hit band-is left with are the concessions. The band's real money comes from T-Shirts, posters and associated paraphernalia sold at concerts.

Remember, the record companies are supposed to be the victims in the MP3 revolution. If MP3's really represent stealing from musicians, the record companies' real beef is that the outsiders are horning in on their actions.


Funny video. Although what I have typed up here is true and seems to be somewhat contradictary on the record label's behalf, it is an apparent law so there is only one thing to do.....

07-18-2003, 10:47 PM
yea, artists dont make nearly enough money for their work, its the stupid record labels and RIAA, i had a dream that i burnt RIAA headquarters to the ground one time *begins laughing manically* anyway, also bands make money from concerts, but as you said, CD's are more of a way of promoting their concerts, not the other way around.

The funny thing is theres a real easy way to burn the RIAA...

Once more people start getting sued, every single one of them need to file NUMEROUS counter suits for pain and suffering, emotional trauma, ect... The cases will be dismissed, but in the end if the RIAA has to defend itself against 6 million people the legal fees will send it under.

Eitehr way, Stopping music sharring is like Prohibition, FAR to many people to it to enforce it...it jsut wont happen... The RIAA does have alot of Cash, but not enough to sue 6 billion people...and if they keep suing people, artist's music wont get out, their fans will get angry over lawsuits, the artists will not get any publicity, they will turn on the RIAA, ect...

I think the RIAA is the one that really needs to be looked at, im sure they are guilty of cooking the books on many occasions.

yea, downloading isnt that bad to me, because i seriously dont have the money to get it. So its like, they can not make money from me, or not make money from me, either way. And i hate when they compare it to walking into a store and stealing, because your not actually depriving them of a sale, like you would be if you did that. But lets not try to say anything too incriminating here /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
