Trading still cripples the artist, label

Okay, Dan... if you really wanted to buy the new Melodica CD, for example, but got it on CDR in a trade, how are Ted Poley and Gerhard Pichler going benefit from that? How is the label and the scene supported? That's a loss of a sale: plain and simple. Fine, if it only happens once, right? But you get everybody doing it and it really starts to add up in a hurry.

I think you have to be a musician or a label owner, or know someone in either of these roles, to fully understand the dangers inherent to CD burning. Personally, I don't like paying big money for CDs and I don't imagine you do either. Maybe if the artist/label gets the money they deserve, we North Americans wouldn't have to wait 18 months for Frontiers to release Jimi Jamison's "Empires" domestically!!

Just a few thoughts..
