ECH's 1st Law: Never attribute to intentional evil that which can be explained by stupidity or incompetence.

ECH's 1st Corollary: 98% of humanity is either stupid or incompetent.

ECH's law is also known as Hanlon's Razor.

ECH's second law is rank optimism.

Thats totally unfair man. I would suggest to you that you support local musicians and minor labels if you have qualms about that sort of thing.

I'll add a line to this effect to my manifesto.
Don't use the email in my profile. I lost the password to that accou t a while ago.

Praise NHGH! For the tribulation of all sentient beings.

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well. No sooner do we deem ourselves free from a particularly gross superstition, than we are confronted by some enemy to learning who would plunge us back into the darkness -H.P.Lovecraft

The human race will disappear. Other races will appear and disappear in turn. The sky will become icy and void, pierced by the feeble light of half-dead stars. Which will also disappear. Everything will disappear. And what human beings do is just as free of sense as the free motion of elementary particles. Good? evil? morality? feelings? Pure Victorian fictions. Only egotism exists. - H.P.Lovecraft

Ok diogenes. Thats better than asking us not to get paid. Now maybe you might also want to consider a flat out boycott of major label acts rather than not paying them for stuff they created.

Editted for accidental omission of not.

I haven't traced all of the big four to their umbrella corps, but it looks like they may all be owned by the big five information corporations... which would make it not entirely unlikely that this is really about controlling information on the internet. The big five already (for all practical purposes) own the airwaves and print, so it makes sense that the internet would be their next bid.
One of them is Disney.

Just saying.

Yep. Another one traces back to Comcast.

SOPA and PIPA have nothing to do with copyright protection. They have to do with media control.

Actually, I've got the current list at the house.  I'll be happy to post it when I get home.

I've added another line to the suggesting that the many people out there who don't want to cut out mainstream media entirely could instead limit their patronage to films, bands, etc where the actors, singers, directors, etc have publicly expressed opposition to SOPA.

Here's my deal, PDS:  If artists don't have a right to be paid for their work, then neither does anyone else.  We merely enjoy privilege.

You stealing a song is - simply put - stealing from someone trying to make a living.

I'm not saying that we should pirate things. My manifesto does not at any time mention ripping off copyrighted music.
This manifesto is supposed to be more directed to the people who already have some inclination to make their own free stuff purely to express themselves to get off their asses and do it. I have no problem with paying artists for their for their music, acting, writing, etc. (My problem is purely with the corrupt middlemen between them and myself).

(Perhaps I should also add a line supporting artists who sell their work directly to the consumer)

I believe you also mentioned something about not buying first hand music. This suggests that you are somehow getting your music without giving the artist their due. If youre buying a used cd cool. Otherwise second hand seems to indicate piracy.
