You're right, I meant the major labels. IMHO (setting myself up for another flame here) a lot of the Indy stuff is less protected because it's crap and nobody would want to steal it. Looking at it from another angle, many of the Indy bands WANT people to share (i.e. steal) their music so they get more people listening and can sign to a major label. Before you slam me with a bunch of contradiction, yes, I have tried Indy music here and there. I listen to country, and by and large, I haven't found anything that sounded nearly as polished (or interesting) as many of the acts on major labels right now. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there's a lot of great stuff out there; I just haven't run across that one percent in my browsing. I hope there's more of it in other genres.
