  • How much of your music collection is pirated?

    I'm curious about how many people pay for their music. No need to reply if you don't want to, we can keep it anonymous (I know some people are hardcore about not pirating).

    Personally, I prefer to support a band by seeing their show. So I download a fair amount these days, but still haven't downloaded more than I've bought. Maybe about 30% downloaded.

      Id say 30 to 40% It depends if I deem the album worthy of purchase. I prefer the quality of an original disc. And I like to support the little guys.

        it really depends on what you consider pirated.... I don't call doing a mate a cd equivalent of a 'mix tape' a pirate cd.
        The other thing is, I buy a lot of my cd's used off ebay, the artist gets no money out of me anyway, so that's really just as bad....
        Also the first time I stared getting mates to copy me thier cd's was because I couldn't buy the album on vinyl, so that was the record companies fault. I don't see why I should be forced into buying a ****************ty cd.
        When I hear the term 'pirate cd' I think of it as a bootleg that someone is selling to make money, if you are just copying it for a mate, I don't think there is anything wrong with that, we've all beeen doing that since the invention of cassettes.....I can remember taping songs off the radio when I was a kid

          probably 80% of the stuff I've gotten since they figured out how to compress sound... I just don't hear that much stuff I think is worth paying for.

                cheers...and the other point to that is:
                the guy selling it probably copied it before he sold it!!!!!!!!!

                    10-20 records out of 2000 CDs or so.
                    That's less than 1%, so I voted 0%.

                        at least 40%. now. I went on a spree recently, but seriously most of it is old, odd, out of print stuff some nice guys ripped onto the internet. I really do like to contribute to the artist, especially somebody I believe in. Most recent buy :Tom Waits-Orphans [paid full damn price too]

                          I have lots I didn't pay for, but nearly all of it is stuff given to me by friends that I don't listen to. I buy CDs I like. Hard for me to figure it out, as it appears to be a matter of perspective. I periodically delete stuff I never listen to, balancing the ratio between stuff I have and haven't paid for more realistically, but I haven't done it in a while.

                            0% - only exception being compiliations or a "mixed tape" someone might burn for me.

                              About 20 albums out of 400 are burned CD copies. These are generally albums that are discontinued or things I wouldn't have bought anyway.
