What you are all doing is theft, you are stealing copyright that someone else owns.

 

 

What people are doing is to circumvent a system which has been subverted from ensuring that creative people get their just rewards into a system which funnels large amounts of money into the pockets of the already rich and powerful for no particular reason.

 

There is no longer a need for a "recording" company... anyone can set themselves up a recording studio in their spare room, and distribute their output worldwide. Similarly, there's no longer a need for a "movie studio"; anyone who wants to can record video, edit it, and distribute it worldwide.
