Okay, I admit it: I’m a Napster user.
After taking interest in the Blue Man Group, I thought about buying their album. Just to be sure, however, I got on Napster and downloaded a couple songs from their album.
After listening, I decided to go ahead and by the DVD version instead of the CD version. This leaves me with a small moral quandry:
If I had purchased the CD, I would have no problem keeping the MP3s on my hard drive; I’ve paid for the licence to listen to them and could certainly make my own MP3s of them.
However, in buying the DVD, I am unable to make MP3s of them. Do I then have the same right to have the ones I downloaded on my hard drive? When I buy a movie, this does not mean that I have the right to download music from the soundtrack. However, this is DVD Audio…
So, what do you think?
