Does that mean that when he's eventually convicted, we can gloat?:lol:

If bands 'don't get that much money from record sales' as I've heard so much before, then why the hell is Metallica and numerous other money hungry sellouts so anti-Napster and anti-MP3?

I know the RIAA is the main thing that's after MP3 downloading today..but the bands started the whole thing.

Becuase of two reasons

1. They get a quater of their money from records and some can't bear to let that much go, even if they'd still have more money then they can spend with or without it because they're, like you said, "money hungry sell-outs".

2. It would lose their record company money, giving the company a reason to drop them. Other companies wouldn't take them because they'd lose the money too. So they end of with no advertising for concerts, no records, and lose of a career.

So theirs alot riding on what they say and do, if a record company thinks they'd lose money from an artist they won't sign a contract with them.

I don't really take notice of celebrities but it must be said that most of them don't really work that hard to get where they are now. That is usually due to PR and media hyping them up.

All this is, its just a way of hogging the spotlight on their behalf and also that of media.

As for the RIAA/MP3 thing, the RIAA claims most of the profits made by the artists on labels that are RIAA members (we Brits have our RIAA, it's called the British Phonographic Industry or BPI). It's only because of the internet that the RIAA claimed to have lost $4.2 billion to "piracy".

Now seriously, is it really possible to lose that much money to a single source? It's like Sigma destroying the world because of fleas...in my opinion of course. ;)
