I have bought and sold many second hand vinyls Kael- on occasion I have profited favourably from such transactions.
According to the intellectual property industry I shouldn't be able to do this - in fact, the shop where I buy originals can't own them either as they'd be selling them to me - ergo we have our argument of 'industry' jobs and 'ownership' of property.
A direct form of licensing which cuts out any middlemen between publisher and consumer is what they wish for. This means hundreds of thousands of people who be independent distributors of licenses which are good for one consumer only, ideally cutting them down to zero as online purchases as storage become the norm.
In theory I am not against this system. However the fact that the artists who create these works get very little of what they generate and how often I'm exposed to them 'for free' troubles me greatly.
I wish for compensation every time I hear a track I have not approved of hearing. If I see an image of something I do not wish to I want compensation for that also.
If we remove the advertising elements of the 'industry' you'll find very quickly that the ebb-and-flow of purchases associated with it dwindle.
If they must rape our minds with their annoying creative works then they have to appreciate that, due to its price and inconvenience, people will find alternative methods of obtaining copies.
I truly am for people being paid for their work, however a fairer payment scheme and allowing my friends and family to access my purchases with an industry which promotes employment rather than destroys it is what is needed.
And bullies hate relinquishing their perceived power...hence why I am making sure they do whenever I get the chance.
