That slippery slope ...

I agree with you Stephen that burning CDRs is stealing. I go one further and say that I steal all the time via Napster.

But it should not go with out saying that Record labels do their own fair share of stealing. How many times have you bought a CD/LP blind or after hearing one song and then find out that it stinks?

It also should be said that the major Record Labels totally rape their signed artists, unless they go multi-platinum.

A rhetorical question: Why should the buying public be morally bound to do the right thing when clearly most Records Labels have no moral anchor?

Big Dog

BTW, if you live in the great 'ol USA, making a tape from your LP is a copy right infringement, albeit one that the record labels will chose not to prosecute (unless you are mp3.com).
