GUEST,Captain Swing Ethical question about ripping CDs (78* d) RE: Ethical question about ripping CDs 28 Sep 18

I used to be very strict on this eg when guests performed at the folk club would either buy their cassettes or not but would not accept copies from others or give copies. Now times have changed, so I'm told, and it's live gigs that make the money for performers so perhaps if I give someone a copy of a CD that encourages them to buy a ticket for a gig perhaps I am doing the performer a favour.

Certainly, there are many, many people releasing albums these days. Not sure how sales would have a significant impact on a performer's living.
