I wrote this feature on music piracy that some of you might want to read and share around.

Re: i$e's Magical Music Megapost

Good article, i$e. Well written. Music piracy is a topic I've discussed loads of times with friends and everyone seems to have a different opinion on it, so it's hard to pinpoint whether it's 'good' for music or not. A lot of people 'try before they buy' as you've mentioned but then don't actually purchase the album in the end. I know I've been guilty of that in the past.

Re: i$e's Magical Music Megapost

Very well written article i$e, couldn't have done a better job myself.

Viral marketing has become very beneficial for the struggling artist regardless of piracy. The "pay as you wish" option has also become much more attractive, though bands with an integrated loyal fanbase tend to reap the rewards of this since they already generate massive traffic and make tons of money off merch and concert sales alone. A relatively unknown artist would benefit from being on Bandcamp for the small exposure, and likely wouldn't make that much less than if their albums were being sold. The market is overly saturated right now, if you're not signed to a major record label, the only way you'll ever gain traction is by word of mouth, and piracy plays a big role in having your music easily accessible to the public.

I've been guilty of hitting Groovshark (i'm Canadian, last I checked I couldn't get Spotify) for the odd tune, I think we've all been guilty of this one way or another. If I really like what I hear, i'll support the artist. I purchased all of Echaskech's albums off Amazon the other day, and i'm a frequent itunes customer. Piracy cannot be stopped, but it can be quelled, and by offering a more attractive alternative is the way to go. Netflix has accomplished this for movies and it's worked wonders.

Re: i$e's Magical Music Megapost

pretty much only pay for music now if its a really nice vinyl, an underground band i want to support or the odd random cheapo in a charity shop.
Havent yet gotten into pay stream sites like Spotify or Netflix but my mates use them and i see the benefit, especially when we're discussing music and can instantly put on almost anything we're talking about, I'll probably come round to it sometime but atm I have too much music on my drive, ipod and physical stuff on shelves that I dont have time to listen to, plus mainly I dont need anymore monthly bills right now.

The viral marketing and diversifying is a good point, I know a few people making a meagre living doing bands and labels atm, scraping by and touring lots but nobody is gonna get rich doing it anymore less you get incredibly lucky. It's become less and less of a career option which just leaves the ones doing for the love of it,fair enough. No little or mid level bands are really making much money touring and selling merch though, the venue owners are staking a bigger claim of the pie and booking agents will become like the new record companies.

Im doing less illegal downloading the last year but thats more down to the end of the golden era of mediafire though, gone are the days when you just had to google the album title and get it right away. The real kicker is most of the great music blogs went with it and I mainly used them to find random obscure old stuff that id happily pay for if i had any hope of finding it, miss checking the likes of Cosmic Hearse everyday to discover lost gems I'd never heard of.

Bandcamp is a great resource and cool for finding new stuff but theres a lot of wading through shit to get there, good for bands though.
