Music industry presses lawsuit 
against an internet illiterate single mother of five who has clearly derived zero benefit from the unauthorized use of her home computer.

Meanwhile, I just got a Christmas present from someone signed to a major label.

Several CDs.

All homemade pirates.

I don't personally burn CDs except to download them to my MP3 player for personal use, but I'm sorry, but It's just getting difficult to be very vigilant about the copyright interests of the music labels in this context.

If someone lends me a CD and I like it (which is actually rare), I usually go out and buy the CD, or another one by the same artist.

I do loan CDs to people. I've been reluctant to do so in the past except to musicians who make use of them in an educational "fair use" context, knowing how prevalent the practice of unauthorized copying.

If they had had a track record of fair dealing with artists I might feel a little differently.

Actually, I don't know why labels aren't more generous with their material. If I had a record label, I'd make every CD a double CD. Every CD would come with another sampler of 10-12 other artists on the label, unencrypted.

And it would come with a document encouraging CD purchasers to make unlimited copies and email the files to their friends. Maybe with a way you can email a coupon for a discount, or an embedded link to a paid download site where you can download more.

I buy quite a few CDs. Really, most labels don't make an effort. Most labels insult my intelligence both musically and commercially.

I can think of one exception: Compass Records, run by an excellent Banjo player named Alison Brown.

Bonus - almost everything I hear on that label is a gem. Check out just about anything by Kate Rusby.

Splash, out

Comments:
I am a big fan of Asian Man Records because when I ordered two CDs from one of their artists.. for $7 each.. they sent me a free CD of that artists band, on the same label.

When's the last time a major label gave you a free anything?
