I agree the issue isn't simple and I agree that artists have to find a way of letting us taste their music first before we buy but it's a slippery slope once you, even with good motives, decide that you're going to taste a certain CD first through CDRs because an artist failed to put any mechanic in place for you to do so. From there it's only 1 step to keeping certain CDs on CDR only because they weren't good enough to buy. Sorry but that's not your/my anybody else's choice. The artist / label didn't make it available at different prices for different levels of enjoyment. Maybe that'll come around in 5 years time on a pay per play fully web enabled basis but not just yet. Until then the routes we've got offer us 2 choices : pay & have or don't pay / don't have. This 3rd way of stealing it can't be helping. As for Offspring etc, again I'd say 1) that's the choice of 1 artist but can hardly be rolled out to mandatorily include everybody and 2) it's not just the artists choice. The other people involved in getting the CD into our hands need a cut too. I seem to recall hearing that record companies aren't that keen on napster?
