Re: [microsound] torrents

but the artist never sees the money from that 2nd hand cd sell...

And an artist who does a painting or a sculpture doesn't make any money when the work is later resold (often at a much higher figure as the artist's reputation grows). Is this not a similar injustice? How about used books? Should the writer get a cut every time the book changes hands?

I think this thread we've been following is one of the most slippery ethical issues one could possibly attempt to resolve. Personallly, I can agree with the rationale and justification for all of the viewpoints, depending on how I look at it - which leaves me in an opinionless void. Kind of a nice place to be, all things considered.
