i dont see the big deal in this , as my friend who is in the biz said if your making millions of $$$$ who cares about people dl'ing
if your a new artist then hey its a great way to get heard
now i for 1 wont buy something that i have heard 1 song on the radio that i like, i will dl more of there stuff and if i like it then i will go out and buy the cd.
my other point is the artists dont make the majority of the money on album sales they make there money doing the tour and all the merchandise
i again have to say since dl'ing my music i have ended up buying stuff that there is no way in hell id have even given a chance to b4
just my $0.02
