Re: Youtube vids increased Monty Python DVD sales by 23,000% on Amazon !!!
But what about those poor authors being bled dry by the public library system. I borrow books, read them and don't give the authors a cent. Did you notice how people stopped writing novels once libraries were invented? ;)
But seriously, has anyone considered how great it is for someone like me to hear that big budget films and albums may not be made because of illegal downloads?
Fuck yeah says I. I hate that shit. If "artists" won't make Titanic or another Mariah Carey album because they won't make their cash back I am happy. If only those who believe they have a wonderful story to tell make music and movies (like so many authors and painters who don't make money but do it because they love it) then the world will be a better place.
Nobody has the unalienable right to make money through self expression.
