Multimedia, AV ABC.net.au has published an article titled "The Case for Piracy". The writer shows how copyright has been hijacked by corporations and that publishers are their own worst enemies. "One of the main reasons we all have anti-piracy slogans embedded in our brains is because the music industry chose to try and protect its existing market and revenue streams at all costs and marginalise and vilify those who didn't want to conform to the harsh new rules being set."

I haven't pirated any Western music made in the past ten years. Mostly because it's all shit. I listen to non-english because I'm not disheartened by how it's all about sex when I can't understand it. Songs today amount to "you, bed, now, bring friends". Get off my lawn ye young whippersnappers!

No need to go into "old times were better"... (a popular myth known in written forms since antiquity)

There's a staggering amount of great music, and more easily discoverable than ever.
