Arch, be careful what you wish for! Do you want to become an ebay
consumer instead? Instead of getting mildly scalped on the playground,
you'll soon pay a month's wages for a rare CD. There was a Gilels disk
I wanted on ebay. The bidding started at about $10 but rocketed to over
On the other hand, we can all become music pirates. And well we should
if our only legal recourse is through scalpers like the one above. If
these disks are no longer being produced, why the $$@%*#!! shouldn't
we be able to reproduce them? What is the statute of limitations on
this? I buy everything and only make the occasional copy for a friend,
but sometimes I feel like a chump.
