Subject: RE: Show Of Hands - over the top?-Arrogance, Ignorance
I think the point would be that Myspace downloaded tracks are not intended as as a shared facility for transfer to the MySpace page (or indeed any other type of page) of a third party, but more as a taster of what the overall CD sounds like (as for instance with Sting's snippets of his "Winter " CD on his website before Christmas). Short snippets of each track give you a flavour of what to expect, and an idea of whether you might wish to buy the thing or not. You don't normally need a full track to get some idea of that. The point of loading up a track on a Myspace page for most people is usually to advertise one's wares or sound , not to facilitate the download of those tracks by third parties to their own Myspace page - or at least that is the case with most people that I know. Hardly a case of arrogance or ignorance.
