Folks - we don't need someone to tell us we've done something illegal.
We don't need someone looking over our shoulders.
Helll, at the prices for music and videos from iTunes, I'm sure the amount of illegal downloads has gone down.
The folks that are still doing this, are likely to be youngsters or folks who can't afford .99 (Not many folks)
Your likely to find a lot of the music on iPods (and other MP3 players) is music that someone had, but couldn't download somewhere (old or hard to get).
Is there illegal music out there … helll yes! Is it has bad as folks make it out to be, I don't think so. I think you'll find most people have a movie or 2 that they didn't pay for, because it isn't out yet, or it's not available for $1.99 yet.
What's done is done… let's Grandfather all past actions, and get more content available sooner at $1.99 and let's not give folks a reason to want / have to get it illegally.
I sure in helll don't know how the itunes / NBC police are going to round up all of the folks who may have something illegal on their iPods / MP3 players. Helll "I didn't put it on there" "I didn't even know it was on there" "It must have been put on by one of my MANY friends I let use my iPod / MP3 player. "I don't watch that pieces of shiiit show and wouldn't have in on my iPod (if I would have know it was on it, I would have trashed it myself)"
There will be a ton of excuses from folks on this.
- Ok, so I purchase a friends iPod, (who purchased it from someone else) - so go get those people?
Are they going to put some kind of GPS system so they can track us down …
I mean the more I write, the more pissed I get.
NBC … just get over your self, come back crawling. Folks will soon forget and your stock holders will be happy again.
PS Shiit, Big Brother reads this list … I'm doomed
