I don't like to make a big fuss on this list... but this kind of just confuses me and seems sad that TT went this way (calling the kettle black that is).

OKay, I admit I woud love to get my hands on some of the b-sides from the new album because I simply don't have the money right now to purchase import singles until probably this summer... not only that but I've spent close to $2k or more on Garbage in my day (www.silvermeg.net/garbage and that isn't even all of what I have!)

and I agree with g.o. on:

<<"I agree that publishing this mp3 is technically piracy.  I'm not going to argue the meaning of the word or the morality of the action.  I'm just wondering why it's now become a big deal on trash-talk.  Yes, I'd been absent from the list for a few years around the BG era, so maybe I missed something.  But this is the first time I'VE ever seen a trash-talker share a b-side, and have a bunch of other trash-talkers yell "PIRACY!" ">>

BUT... why do the videos run rampet for free?  Going into the film industry and being a film student now, it's totally the same set of piracy standards and so forth.  Why is no one bitching about looking at copies of videos that people have encoded??  I love Elfie's DVD of garbage music videos, but no one bitched about that and that technically violates copyrights since she collects fees for her fanclub.

So my question is, why the double standard with video?  And why suddenly all the bitching about posting MP3's esp when I think we are aware that this group for the most part are some of the most hardcore trashers.  ANd if you're gonna bitch about MP3 copies of songs, why aren't you bitching about encoded copies of videos?  Esp when I know a lot of people on TT for sure downloaded copies of BG when it was leaked...
