I am thinking seriously regarding the new digital age of music and its transfer, et al.
In the past and still present, we may directly record signals from FM or AM radio with no accusations of thievery.
Regarding your situation, which I obviously don't have much info about it, it seems like you have a legitimate complaint.
However, I fear that the whole matter, not just music distribution, but just about every thing dealing with digital or rather digital 's impact and ability to impact almost every facet of modern life is just too much.
The constant reminder from various digitized voices, pop-ups, EULA, etc, etc coupled with an almost - or worse than Orwell's 1984 ...Security for our sakes is pushing harder everyday.
I could write almost indefinitely about this, but...
Just some thoughts on the matter.
Unfortunately, music is one example of this system that I wish could be handled in a different manner.
