With my darkling
I will admit something to you all, I am a recovering file downloader addict.Did I know this was wrong? of course I did, but the allure of free music, and even getting movies before their release! overpowering!
I watched LOTR a week before it came out, a great full screen acadamy awards copy! Now I no longer down load, out of fear, but I admit my evil addiction, and have been sober for 3 months.(well, kinda, we are only talking about download addiction right?)I dont argue I was right, just that it was easy.Where else do you get Joan Biaz and Dylan singing "it aint me babe" live? thats just an excuse, I have downloaded shamelessy since napster.
I agree that this is copyright infringement.
But it was so easy! So now I do not download, and await how the industry decides to truly deal with unstoppable addiction.Because it is unstoppable.The industry needs to find a way to redefine how it delivers content, because they will never stop the downloads.
