I see that on ebay, someone has a copy of the Regents Park Fan club concert for sale. I know this must be an illegal copy, but if you were there, like I was, I guess its the only way to get a copy. If someone can knock out a copy like this so quickly (and presumably cheaply) it makes you wonder why the artists do not.
I know this is a hot topic which has been discussed before and you can make your own minds up about pirate copies etc. But if they are not available legally then this is the only way. I argue that the artist cannot claim he is losing out if he was never going to sell it in the first place! I buy most Finn related official stuff, but also collect lots from the web, especially live. You only have to follow this forum to see people are crying out for the chance to purchase copies of live concerts they have been to.
I would also argue that it can help artists. I was never much into Split Enz, however after the 2 concerts I have been to this year I started to download and listen to Split Enz, which has led me to buying the Split Enz DVD from EzyDVD in Austrialia. So I would also argue that the artist has gained by my ability to listen to Split Enz without buying and get converted. I would welcome others comments on this.
Anyway enough from me, over to you!
