punkfolkrocker Making folk club recordings available (190* d) RE: Making folk club recordings available 07 Jul 21

"Reading back I think the problem here is that the poster was recommending the use of a downloader along with the links, which does make it piracy..."

Downloaders are legal and are widely used...

They are a legitimate tool, with accepted function and purpose,
beyond your narrow minded definition of 'piracy'...

You might just as well be accusing anyone of sailing a boat of being a pirate...!!!???

Downloaders are essential for folks who struggle against crap unreliable internet connections
who are unable to stream media without excessive buffering, glitches, and freezing..

Sometimes the only viable option is to download online video/audio
for playback offline...

I can tell you for a fact, that even with 'good' broadband
music streaming services I PAY for,
are problematic and frequently unlistenable...

.. and these legal corporate streaming services are definitely actively ripping off music artists,
far far worse than any dedicated music enthusiasts who enjoy sharing amateur archive recordings...

YOU are the one who is out of step with 21st Century media distribution culture...
