[QUOTE=relaxo;8239027]Most of the music the public wants to possess is illegally free.

If people had to buy music they would pay for it. Case in point:

What if the existing law was actually enforced and the ONLY way to get the songs that make the public feel good was from buying them? Then they would have to pay for the music that benefits their life. GASP! Would music still have no value in this case? If you say yes, then people would flat out not be able to play all their favorite music at will. Do you think they would start paying again or stop listening to their loved music at will? They 1000% will start paying again. See how off-base your statement truly is? Music is invaluable in our life.

There is one problem with that, the places to legally buy music are closing down as it is or they have an extremely small selection.
You and I both live in the arts centres of our respective countries; in that we are lucky because there are still good record stores around.

But if you live in a small town and don't have credit card where can you buy music from? Kmart, Target, that chain in the mall that used to sell CDs but now mostly sells DVDs? If you can't get it legally then how else will you get it?

Music is invaluable for people like us, but a lot of people don't really care about it or know much about it.
