Re: Buying music
I've been having this conversation with a lot of people lately. I can't understand how some people don't understand this.
Music is art. Art should be valued. If everything is free then nothing has value. If people love music, then it should be valuable enough for them to pay for it.
That said, I haven't paid for every piece of music I own, but I can count the exceptions on one hand. They're all either:
A) Songs that are now out-of-print so there is no "legitimate" way to obtain them, or,
B) Songs that I already own but I can't put on my computer (This is the case for only two songs I have)
If music is worth enough to steal, then it's worth enough to pay for.
To answer the OP. Copying CDs from the library is exactly the same thing as torrenting.
