      I would say that bootelgging is good for artists that dont have a great contract and label, such as underground artists.. Bootlegging would just give them more promotion and more people would listen to them and I dont think that's bad for them lol.. But for artists on major labels it just means that they will lose sales and money so that's not good. So the conclusion is that it's good for underground artists and bad for artists that are signed to major labels.. Know what I mean..?

          i think for underground artists it helps promote them like emil said, but it takes away from established artists. but if it wasnt for being able to download music i wouldnt have bought kayne west's album, i heard a few tracks before it was released. it only hurts when people rip whole albums and then people dont buy it, thats wrong

                      I don't condone it and it's a hard matter to erase when you will always have a leak in any situtation(not jus music ind) regardless of how high security forces are in place there will always be a shniz that lets it out.It's a sad act of our human nature - greed.The want of profit from another's work.Not only does it affect profit but also the true representation of the performance in the market of the piece as no accurate tally system can be utilised in bootleg copies.The only sort of defense in the racket would be to have an internet distribution copy available along with off the shelf released at the same time or simply don't state any drop dates and jus release when ready maybe announce 3 days b4 to allow for logistics.That's jus my opinion.

                          in all honesty... i think that the artists are way over paid. so i support bootlegging. i would only buy an album if its elite. some tight ass shit. the last album i bought was...you know what.. i cant even remember..oh shit.. i will have to go look at my cd collection to find out. i think i may have been a korn album. but not the recent one.
                          oh well. bootlegging is ok in my book. i do plan on buying the new d12. i guess its that time to just splurge.

                              all the talkin about copyin and bootleggin albums gets on my nerves...
                              i mean, neither an eminem or a xtina aguilera should have a problem with it...they#ve got millions...
                              i think the ppl bootleggin it worst 4 are middle-famous-ppl that haven't really blown yet but ain't underdogs neither...
