And then complain the customer ruins their music business part of their companies because of all the copying....... Moreover, don't they get paid a general "royalty" for every copying apparatus and media which is automatically included in the price in many countries when sold to the customer? So I pay them a profit and royalty for each apparatus and each media, and then I can't copy? Yeah right...
