Not simply poking the hornets' nest here but instead, a real question,..
From an ethics point of view, what's the diff between me listening to
a tune on youtube vs. downloading the tune? Wouldn't the artist like
to see us pay for youtube viewing of their tune? If so, why isn't it
just askin',The answer, I believe, is that the legitamacy of youtube is still not a
settled issue. There is some TV content that is now permitted (I forget
who made the agreement with youtube), but there is other stuff that is
plainly in voilation.
How long youtube will continue in its present form is an open question.
It's not over yet..
Part of the reason I ask is that my good buddy and lead guitarist
won't allow his kids, or himself, to download music because he thinks
it's wrong, and we're in Canada where downloading audio files for
personal use is legal...for now. He will however, let them watch
youtube, etc. In fact, we've learned most of our songs from youtube.
Something in there doesn't mesh. I'd say youtoobz days as we know
them, are severely numbered.
hmmm, all these ethical considerations make me want to put on a
smoking jacket, grab a cohiba & cognac, and head for the music
...does he own a VCR? Or an audio tape deck? Or a TiVO?
Maybe a vcr & a tape deck. Why do you ask?
