Yup, I do. It is wrong, but I can justify it to myself.

 

 

 

In Canada, and most European countries, it IS NOT illegal. Court cases and the law prove my point over and over: the record companies are not the law.

I do. I know I shouldn't but CD's are just so damn expensive buying one after the other. This way I can actually listen to music without having to commit murder.

Yep. I don't go crazy with it though, couple songs here and there that are hard to find is pretty much all. If I enjoy the music, chances are I'll go and buy the CD. Although if there's only a few songs I'd like, I'll probably just download it from somewhere. :thumbup:

I know professional bands who do. I heard the bands make little money off of the CDS.

 

 

 

All the bands I would pirate music from I support directly or are millionaires.

It could happen, you know DVDs that have safeties on them so you can't put them on your comp or copy them.

Which are easily broken in the end.

Here's my justification.

 

 

 

Walking into a store and running off with a CD is wrong. It costs the company money to produce the physical disc and box.

 

 

 

When you download from the internet, you're not getting anything physical. It does not cost anyone money. Therefore nothing is being stolen.

Whoa, I definitely want some proof on how it is legal to pirate in Canada. Please.


There's no such thing as regret. A regret means you are unhappy with the person you are now,

and if you're unhappy with the person you are, you change yourself. That

regret will no longer be a regret, because it will help to form the new,

better you. So really, a regret isn't a regret.

It's experience.

I pirate almost all of my music, but some small bands that I really like I will support and buy their CD.

Whoa, I definitely want some proof on how it is legal to pirate in Canada. Please.

In a shocking Federal Court decision handed down last week, Justice Konrad von Finckenstein declared that the music industry did not provide sufficient evidence to warrant unmasking the identities of these and 25 other suspected music file swappers. The Canadian Recording Industry Association - a lobby group representing the country's major record labels - had asked the court to order ISPs such as Sympatico and Videotron to reveal the names and contact information of suspected swappers in order to serve them with lawsuits for copyright infringement. (Nearly 2,000 people have been sued in a similar manner in the U.S.)

 

 

 

Not only did the judge refuse the order, citing privacy concerns and a lack of evidence showing the accused were actively distributing copyrighted songs, he also ruled that uploading songs to networks such as Kazaa does not constitute copyright infringement. This, combined with a Copyright Board decision that downloading music is legal under Canadian law, has led many observers to declare that file sharing - both the uploading and downloading of free music files to and from the Internet - is now legal in Canada.

 

 

 

"It is now abundantly clear, if it was not before, that downloading songs from the Internet for personal use and merely making them available to others is not infringement of copyright in Canada," said Howard Knopf, the lawyer

 

 

 

representing the Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic, who argued against the music industry in the case.

In my country it's legal to download already published materials (including music and movies), so why should I feel guilty?

The worst part is that there's more logic to it than anti-piracy ads.
