Agreed, but that's never been a problem. If it was, the "public performance" laws would affect everyone who buys or rents or streams a movie, and watches it with their spouse.

The problem is with those who send out mp3s to people, post them in their entirety for free downloading, etc. And those same people defend themselves by saying "But I'm helping promote the band by spreading their music!"

I wonder if anything has any value to some of them. I hope they all write songs or software, and then try to sell them. Now that's Karma in action!
