Coco... must be nice in your world. Don't have to worry about the messy task of buying CDs. Let someone else do that, right? Then borrow, burn and return... all under the self-righteous guise that "everybody's doing it, so what's the problem?"

Here's the problem... if everyone did that, there would be no more record labels, no more bands, no more of what little is left of the scene! And this whole "he who hasn't sinned cast the first stone" shit is the biggest line of cowardice I have ever read! If you must traffick in replicas, at least stand up and admit your true intentions! Don't pass the buck. Face it: you're too cheap/lazy to buy CDs so you cherry-pick the best tracks off someone else's discs or trade with someone as equally as opportunistic as you are.

As I said, I have burned CDs for people. I'm not going to lie about it. But the CDs that I burned were WAYYY out-of-print. Stuff like Giuffria's "Silk + Steel" (before the re-issue), Buck Dharma's "Flat Out" etc. And sure, it's piracy all the same. But it's a victimless crime when the out-of-print CD is no longer trying to afford an artist or its label/distributor a living. When you burn a CD that's still in print for someone who would have bought it had it not been for your CD-R, that's wrong, my friend. And just because it's widespread practice, doesn't make it right. If anything, it makes it even MORE wrong.
