Thread: Lars Ulrich Napster days huh?

  1. #1

    Red face Lars Ulrich Napster days huh?

    I think the RIAA would have a hard time suing someone who has paid for the music and not delivering it at 128k. That would be a PR nightmare for the industry when they start suing folks who have actually purchased the music legally.

    Brings back the Lars Ulrich Napster days huh? I've lost all respect for Mettallica, quite a shame because I was listening to them from the "Ride The Lightning" days. I wrote a rather caustic email to their site about their crappy selection of downloadable music.

    The reply was "well you can get most of the bands stuff online..."

    Right, in the same sorry format as a CD and the same price to boot. Basically you have to buy the whole album, you can't purchase the individual tracks, which is the point of iTunes and downloadable music in general. I don't want all of the crap music with the good stuff.

    Sorry, had to add my $.02 on this one..

    Respectfully,
    EJ Lear

    Yes. In buckets of bloody chum. I can't explain it to an outsider, but it works for us.

    That was an impressive copy paste.

    The OP was a copy+paste that, after a little googling, i found posted on numerous forums all over the web. Most got deleted from what I saw pretty quick.

    His other contributions to the .org were simple Copy+pastes of Orgah posts, rather than an obscure post from another forum. And as Sasaki said, he had ad links in his sig which was a dead give away of a copy+paste bot.
