Oh, so behind the wall [a long time ago on this earth] we did not listen to any music and did not create any because there was no marketing [and truly there was no marketing for anything]? I think not.
Every time this content copyright stuff comes along I always ask the industry the same thing. OK, so I never own your product, I only bought the right to enjoy it until I live. OK, why then when the tape came along you asked me to purchase IN FULL the Beatles album I bought on vinyl. And then you asked me to pay it again IN FULL to get it on CD. And then you forbade me to make a digital copy so if the CD dies [almost 100% certainty that will happen more than once before I die] guess what. And man, even if you have digital copy they'd change the format in a few years from now and I'd have to convert again [if possible] or....you guessed buy it again IN FULL.
Bottom line: the industry does not honour the contract. Of course I can't sue.
P.S> Did I mention my 600 DVD/Blue ray collection? Those discs die as well - guess how much hassle is to back it all up. No help at all from the people I paid more than 10 000 euro over the years....
