Twenty-eight percent of music downloaders say captured music that they already own in another form (CD or tape) and 63% downloaded new music. This is a marked change from our June 2000 report, in which 13% of music downloaders said they captured music they already owned and 81% downloaded new music. Since the demographics of music downloaders have not shifted significantly in the last few months, it is possible that their behavior has changed. Music downloaders may be using services like Napster to expand their music collections and replace the music they own on old cassette tapes with new digital versions of the same material. Or, there is another possibility for this increase in the number of people reporting they have downloaded music they already owned in another form. More respondents may be giving what they perceive to be a legally safer answer to a question about the type of songs they download.

Growing up in Maryland alongside neo-traditional guitar explorers John Fahey and Max Ochs, Basho's path would take a decidedly different turn, bringing Hindi, Indian, Japanese and Native American musical traditions into his work. His albums for Takoma and Vanguard have left an indelible trail of influence across generations of musicians, from William Ackerman and Pete Townshend to Ben Chasny and William Tyler.Liam Barker first became aware of Basho having purchased Tompkins Square's reissue of Venus in Cancer, released in 2006. This led him on an incredible fact-finding expedition, unraveling the many layers of mystery surrounding Basho's life and death, all deftly compiled and depicted in his documentary film, Voice of the Eagle : The Enigma of Robbie Basho.During the research process, Barker came across a large cache of unheard Basho tapes recorded throughout his career, ranging roughly from 1965-1985. By arrangement with Basho's Estate and the original custodians of the tapes, Tompkins Square is set to release Song of the Avatars : The Lost Master Tapes, a 5CD set of previously unreleased material. The label will release a single disc vinyl LP as well. The set includes notes by Barker, Henry Kaiser, Steffen Basho-Junghans, Glenn Jones and Richard Osborn, as well as many unseen photographs. $(".tralbum-about").last().bcTruncate(TruncateProfile.get("tralbum_about"), "more", "less"); credits released March 5, 2021 license all rights reserved tags Tags folk acoustic guitar american primitive guitar indie folk singer-songwriter San Francisco Shopping cart total USD Check out about Tompkins Square San Francisco, California
The idea that someone who downloads a camcorder-made copy of a theatrical movie is "stealing" it is ludicrous. Yes, it's technically illegal, but let's use some common sense. That's almost as silly as saying I was guilty of theft when I dragged my audio tape recorder into a movie theater and recorded Star Trek II on cassette. I did not "steal" from Paramount to siphon away their revenue but because I loved the movie. I listened to those tapes while sitting in the back seat on long car trips and sometimes while falling asleep at night. My possession of those two 60-minute el-cheapo cassettes (which I distributed for free to two friends) did not reduce the number of times I saw the film. Would I have been upset had someone attempted to prosecute me for this copyright violation? Of course.
There is, of course, a difference between those who pirate movies to sell them at cut-rate prices versus those who download a copy onto their hard drive for personal use. The difference is profit. I agree that it's not only illegal but immoral for someone to make money from someone else's hard work without providing fair remuneration. But I disagree that someone who is downloading a movie because they're curious about it or because they love it and want a copy before it's available on DVD should be subject to punitive action. It's about time the studios recognize this as well.
For someone to argue that downloading and watching a camcorder version of a film is akin to stealing the price of ticket indicates the person making that charge has never watched a camcorder-made video. Even the best are almost unwatchable and sitting through such a copy all but mandates that the viewer has already seen the movie in a theater. In many cases, camcorder copies are not meant to infringe on the studio's copyright. They are meant to give a 13-year old boy the chance to re-live his favorite scene from Iron Man when his mom is too busy to drive him to the theater to see it for the fifteenth time. It's not a substitute; it's an enhancement. (Again, I'm referring to free downloads, not DVDs bought in Times Square. Those selling the latter should be prosecuted.)
Would it impact revenue? Undoubtedly. There are some people who would use the downloads as "review substitutes." Instead of going blindly to see a movie, why not download it and watch part of it to see if it's worth the price of admission? (If it stinks, you can still watch the rest, after a fashion, on your computer.) Studios that see only the lost $ are clinging to the past. And you can't move into the future that way. At some point, they'll be left behind, shaking their heads and wondering where it all went wrong. The genie is out of the bottle. Downloading, both legal and illegal, is a way of life and it has become ingrained into the fabric of a generation's way of looking at things. Those who find a creative way to become part of this new wave will make money. Those who fight it and threaten lawsuits will find their revenue streams drying up. 2b1af7f3a8
