Beware! Unpopular statement coming up. I don’t think You Tube should allow people to post full albums of people’s copyrighted material. You Tube and other free music sites like it are what’s killing the music biz. Of course I’m a professional musician and yes, it affects me. I work hard on my craft and for someone to just be able to pull it up on a free site is like being a organic whole food smoothie shop that gives away all of it’s profits. Yes, it’s serving the community but it’s impossible to sustain. I know I sound like Lars Ulrich, but man, the dream is dwindling as I listen to Eric Johnson’s entire album for free on, you guessed it, You Tube. I do own the album though, so no, it’s not hypocritical. At least not this time.
