    Clamping down on file sharers only. Download away but don't share (and leave others to pay money so the recording artists don't complain)

    For example, I recently bought The Strokes' new CD for £10.99, which is 14 tracks long, working out at 79p per track... whether or not the tracks are any good is another matter, but that is more or less what you would pay using itunes.
    Why on earth did you pay £10.99?

    Even Play.com, one of the most obvious place to buy CDs these days, has it for less than that. :p:

    Bit late now I guess.

    ...£6.99 on bangcd.com:

    surely downloading the music is worse, as you are the one actually copying it... i share my music as i think its wrong to download off the networks without giving anything back.....

    I'll try those sites next time though, thanks for the advice.

    I'm not worried. The chances of them catching me are slim since I don't hang around on P2P networks, and if they do I could probably set up some sort of donation campaign so I don't have to pay myself

    Edit: Whatsmore the newest clapdown was by FACT and that was for illegal application uploads, which is not music.

    Sorry for not making it clear, but I was referring specifically to this case:

    The men were charged with uploading and sharing music, but still... the industry seems to be getting tougher.
