But this is what I just don't get. You buy something you didn't like. Fine. you have the ultimate consumer weapon - walk away. If a record company illegally mishandles its artists - that's theft too and I don't condone it, nor will a court. Record companies aren't obliged to have a moral anchor and dear knows I've tiraded against bonus track scams and the like here and elsewhere but however much anyone feels this (and to be honest very few CDR trader have a coherent anti-label policy in mind - more a "something for nothing") it doesn't justify the theft. If you're convinced there's a moral rectitude to your actions - fine, we'll have to agree to disagree on that one.

PS : Tapes - I meant only replicating an LP you have for your own personal use. In the UK that's fine, however, I suppose you would have to destory the tape if you ever passed the LP on...
