Morality Question

#1 Post by T3hOverlord » 17 May 2011 04:09

I have been wondering: if I buy an album on vinyl, is it okay for me to then download (illegally) a digital version of the album? I wonder this because Darkthrone recently gave away a free digital version of their newest album (Circle The Wagons) if you purchased it on vinyl. This only makes sense to me as you cannot take vinyl in your car or on your walks.

Why don't you just get yourself one of those USB record players that allow you to rip the songs so you can listen to them on your mp3 player? They're not that expensive.

Downloading rips is morally allowed. Some, including me, would argue that it is in fact not merely allowed, but also morally required.

And unfortunately not of very good quality ;) I regularly download the music when I purchase a vinyl, it's like making a copy for personal use. Also, bands often include codes for hq-downloads of the albums when ordering a record.

yeah i was gonna say the same thing, I actually have a USB turntable and it sounds like junk when you put the vinyl on the computer. I tihnk buying the vinyl then downloading the album solves my problem of needing to have a physical copy of the music, as vinyl actually offers sound and an experience an mp3 file cant, unlike cd's.
