This is why I never created anything for public consumption again. Why
spend my time when it's just going to be stolen? If you want people to
keep creating things worth having, you need to encourage them to do
so. The only real means of encouraging someone to create things worth
having is to pay them.
This is all a moot. This privately owned list forbids discussing
trading, lending, borrowing, etc other people's recordings. There are
plenty of other lists that allow and encourage it. Why does it need to
happen here, too?
