It is here in Australia if you want the recent release from an artist. Older cataloge titles will be around $10 or $15 but a bare bones release of a new album is about $19.95 here with special editions being higher.

For example:

Adele:

Alice Cooper:
http://www.jbhifionline.com.au/music/po … are/653761


So here's my choice. If I torrent Adele and liked it, then I have $19.95 left in my bank account do I legitimise my torrent and guy the CD or do I check out Alice's new album. After all I like him more and I don't have it already.

I purchase all my music.  Well almost all of it. Chinese Democracy is the only album I have that I've never paid for. Other than that there isn't a single album or song downloaded on my computer that I haven't paid for other than rare live unreleased bootlegs. Anything on my computer is ripped from a cd that I bought.  Buying albums in their physical form to me is a massive part of what being  music fan is all about.  In my opinion downloading is stealing no matter how you look at it. Weather it be music, books, movies or what have you. Yes I stole Chinese Democracy but Axl and I had an unspoken agreement about that one. Well actually I made the agreement and he had to live with it.

I used to love "The Record Store" and the whole experience of shopping there. But the internet didn't kill that, big box stores did.

Yeah, the difference may be geography. I'm from Brazil and here we went from record store to torrent, there wasn't a corporate chapter in the middle of it. sad

I agree his view on SOPA is very 1 dimensional.

Some things are more important than music or money.

Geez, you Aussies are getting bent over on those prices. The CD's are a combined $22 at Amazon here in the States. The mp3 versions at Amazon are a combined $19. Most Americans don't have to pay sales tax on Amazon purchases, so it's the best place to buy IMHO.

Can you imagine if YouTube goes away? Would fucking suck. That is THE best website on the Internet IMHO. Just being able to access music videos, old concerts, etc. is wonderful. I still remember back in the early days of the Internet having to search all over the place to find GN'R music videos. Now you can go to one site and easily find them all there.

And the music industry is hypocritical as fuck if they want to shut it down. They USE YouTube to promote their artists. Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" has over 440 million views on there, and it was officially uploaded by the record company. They can't sit there and tell us they'd rather NOT have that kind of promotion at all.
