  1. Okay...I know this doesn't really have anything to do with
    trading stocks or futures, but it is trading and it
    is the weekend! :D


    Here's my dilemma you guys can settle for me:


    If I join one of these file sharing websites to trade mp3s,
    am I...


    1. Doing something that brings humanity closer together?



    OR


    2. Are we all just a bunch of thieves trading in stolen property?
     
  2. both:D
     
  3. true - 1 & 2 are not contradictory.

    I've downloaded a couple of thousand songs, and burned them onto disc. I justify it a few ways.

    1. 80% of what I've downloaded I had bought at sometime in the past. In some cases multiple times i.e. album,cassette, CD

    2. MP3's are not always the greatest renderings possible.

    3. The record companies are the most price fixing, scroungy industry in America
