r u a cd collector or a cd burner?


Recommended Posts

I have WAY more burned Cds than store bought, in fact, I don't buy CDs, the real ones I have, I get as gifts or for free. :lol: Just the thinking about it, I sometimes purposely download more songs than I listen to just because the RIAA people piss me off.

I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I think it's really important to support artists.

You'd be surprised how little money the artists actually receive, in fact they receive virtually nothing from your Target(or any retailer) CD purchases.

artists receive roughly $3 for every unit sold, depending on their contract.


so believe it or not, if an artists sells a million copies of something, they really do make a lot of money for it.


also, believe it or not, major record labels lose money on 85% of their releases.


(not that i'm crying any tears for them, because the other 15%, your coldplays and outkasts and radioheads and U2's, make up for it)
