So I read today a great post on ploum.net, titled "Why I'm a pirate!". In the blog post, the author is explaining why he pirates CD's and other media. I found the opinions good and concise.
I feel that the music industry as we now know it is slowly dying. The practices that the big music corporations use are ancient and they don't work anymore. The future is in digital media. I can't even remember anymore when I bought my last CD! As a younger music listener I used to buy the CD's of the bands that I liked and wanted to support them. I do not want to support the corporations behind the music, only the bands that actually come up with the music. That's why nowadays I try to use digital services to support my favorite bands, like Flattr and PayPal donation.
Currently, I am using Spotify as my daily source of music. And you know, I happily pay the 10€ monthly price for the convenience! This is absolutely fantastic service and I wish other medias would turn to this system too, like movies and e-books. Come up with such services and you have a customer right here.
Got any opinion on this subject? Share it in the comments!
