A lot people today are downloading/uploading music from/to the Internet and file sharing with friends, enemies and complete strangers. Very few people are going out and purchasing music anymore from music stores. Another great bit of the population hate CDs that places like Wal-mart sells which are censored and bleeped. Do you prefer supporting your favorite music artists by going out and buying their albums or would you rather downloading it from a file sharing website or portal and bump it in your iPod or mp3 player??

I support my favorite artists (which is like 1 or 2 people) I like the feeling of having their CD in my hands. Why? No idea.. But other than that I'll just download songs. Most money nowadays is made by touring, So I'd rather support most artists by going to their concert. Atleast I'd be getting something worth while out of it.

I like having the CD, too. I just hate the fact that we don't have any good CD stores here anymore but an old, outdated Waterloo. And Walmart sells edited CDs. I like to know the producer information and who wrote the song. I go to Superjam in a nearby city here every other year to see my favorite artists. Thanks for commenting!!

i would like to say that i do the right thing and support musicians, but i don't really buy cds anymore. i just download. i know that technically, it's wrong. but it's a lot cheaper and you basically get the same stuff. i remember when i was younger i always thought that if i ever became a musician, i would let people just get my music for free. i thought that if i were a true musician, and an artist, my main objective would be for people to listen to my music. it should not be money. but now i know that musicians also need money and of course, being human, would love to have lots of it. i'm not saying that they are being selfish. i know that they work hard for their music, but not people can afford to buy music. at the end of the day, these people who download (me included), they just love music. and in that way, they still do support the artist by listening to his or her music.

I prefer download music and burn CD. But the motive is: I LIVE IN BRAZIL!!!!!!! Here one Original CD costs about 1/5 of our Minimum Wage. And we pay lots of imposts. So we aren't supporting our artist buying CDs, we are supporting our corrupt government.

It depends what kind of artist it is, but most of my songs i go out and buy just because i dont feel like i have the songs unless i have the physical copies of them. I feel pride in having the songs. Although if its a band where i like just a few songs thne i will get themfro my mates.

It all depends if I like the artist or not. If I really like the band, I would certainly buy the original. I would also buy if they have their greatest hits in one cd. In Taiwan, they always have the activity of cd signing whenever an artist has a new album. I think that's one way of making people prevent from buying pirated cds. But if you have too many favorites I guess it would mean you have to save enough to be able to buy all them.
