"Who gives a shit."
Not me! Look I said I had no moral issue with the guy uploading stuff from a long-lost VHS that I can't buy. But I have a real problem with the link being posted if it can get the site pulled down! Didn't you fucking read it, you simpleton?
It's *very* simple. I love free shit just as much as you or anyone, but there comes a point where the pursuit of said free shit can get sites like this in trouble. I don't want that!
"People should be able to upload whatever the fuck they want, offically released or not."
Well... no, no they shouldn't. Making music is a job. Would you walk into a McDonalds or a Subway and take food without paying the people who serve you??? In the case of rich people like Queen, I care much less than I do about independent artists. But still.
"The lot of you are constantly stealing, by uploading/downloading copyrighted material that NONE OF YOU OWN."
Yet the copyright owners unofficially sanction us by allowing the trade of such material to go on. If they had a problem with it, it'd stop. We tread a fine line by simply avoiding doing retarded things by uploading Live at Wembley or Greatest Hits 1.
"When you download a 'bootleg', the person uploading doesn't have the legal right to do so seeing as he is not the copyright holder and i'm guessing has not obtained permission from Queen Productions/EMI/whatever."
See above - if they one day decide to crack down, I'm sure we'll *all* gladly cease and desist.
"Same goes for the downloader. So WHY THE FUCK are you people complaining when someone uploads something from 'the long-deleted magic years videos'??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?"
BECAUSE keeping it here might cause trouble. It might not. Queen Productions might never know about it. But what if they did find out, what if they did take issue? The site would be in problems - that doesn't matter to you because you're a social vampire - you'll just find some other site to leech off like the worm you are.
"If you have a problem with people uploading that, then you should have a problem with this entire section of the site. Commercially released material or not, ALL of this uploaded music is ILLEGAL and the lot of you should shut the fuck up until you stop downloading ANY OF IT!"
Again... only too happy to comply once someone with a bit of authority (ie. NOT YOU) tells me to do so.
Don't you fucking get it, retard? I said it very simply - no real problem with the Magic Years stuff being uploaded, but a big problem with it being linked to here, where it's very obvious and in full view of the Powers that Be.
"Personally, I couldnt give a fuck if its commercially released or not. I'm still going to download 'illegal' music."
Go for it.
"Taking food from the hungry?!?!?!? Because of a Live Aid DVD?!?!?!?!?!? FUCK OFF! WHO CARES!"
Now this just sucks. Do you know how much money that Live Aid thing made? And how more than half of it went where it should have? You are some kind of filth and I hope you have an argument with a fast moving bus or something.
