I've said this before and it seems that I need to say it again: In
Spain you're legally allowed to download music. It's our right to do
so. And yes, if you record your music in a studio it can be costly,
but that doesn't change the fact. And I also think that if artists
don't want their music to be shared, they shouldn't put it in the
tubes. Music existed before the industry and it will exist after it.
Their failed business model is not my problem. They should adapt to
the new technologies. Ice sellers could have protested all they wanted
when refrigerators started to appear.
