I mean why is Britney free to download/tape off the radio, but the same exact song can not be downloaded/taped off the internet?
Basically if I take that same song tape/download off the radio and convert it to Mp3 then it's the same thing, so why the big deal about getting the same song off the Internet?
Also if I download the song off of an Internet radio station onto my computer there does not seem to be a big fuss about that either.
I realise with the new free downloading site spiralfrog.com/ (external - login to view) spiral frog coming later this month it will not be that big a deal, cause downloading will once agian be free the way it should be, but it still bothers me that this was such an issue.
I grew up with being able to tape songs off the radio, but those exact songs on my computer are illegal and I have never understood they why's.
The deal they have inked with start-up SpiralFrog allows consumers to access and download UMG's entire library at no cost – provided they're willing to watch advertising as they download the music.
