What do you think about people downloading music instead of buying records now a days? On the one hand is good and on the other is wrong. Is bad because as a musician you do not get any benefit for all the work you did. But it's okay because the music you make can get more easily to other places outside your country. And I personally prefer that my music sounds wherever.
