RE: Dr. Ebbetts

What about buying used copies off ebay, etc.? The artist doesn't see
anything from that. Once that 80's CD was sold once there really is no
difference in terms of the artist's compensation if you buy it second-hand,
copy it from a friend or find it in the street. If I were going to download
in lieu of buying an available commercial release I would agree with you,
but I buy the available stuff and download the unavailable stuff. The artist
is not losing a sale from me and I would suspect I am one of their better

I would also note if one wants to be black and white about this the same
would apply to bootlegs.

Hi Dan!

I must respectfully disagree with your position.  I, too, am bothered
sometimes about the amount of money I pay for repackaged items from the
band.  I cannot count the number of different commercial releases of
Communition Breakdown in my collection.

However these guys made this art, which value is truly beyond monetary
measure.  They put their hearts, blood, souls, and entire being into
these wonderful things, and I believe they have every right to be
compensated for their contribution.  If we chose not to pay, our choice
should not be to download, it should be to refrain from listening at all
or to listen to the other versions we own.

Just my humble opinion.  A great and happy Friday to all of FBO!
