A Huge Concern Over Web:
by: Plaily Muzic
Internet has come to change everything that once relations used to be
lied on. Since Internet had invaded homes, the daily life has never been
the same again. Internet changed the family s habits, the culture and the
way someone sees the world. Music is just a part of this change.
Regarding to music, this issue is even more complicated. People now can
prepare their own CDs by downloading music from the Internet. And this has
become another problematic thing that has contributed to increase the
The music download problem lies on two issues:
- If people can have access to the most varied types of music, they can
have a better idea of a particular artist s material, they can find out
singers they had never heard of and get their CDs even this. These actions
may be a little bit illegal and sometimes reduce the profits of the big
music companies, but, however, it increases the range where a singer is
known. When this happens, both singer and his/her music records win a
special recognition, which may lead to the hire of them for shows and
(guess what?) profits.
- But if it is true that music download can be beneficial for an
artist, sometimes it can also be harmful, speaking about profits of
course. And this loss of money in general happens to already famous
artists. People download their songs from the Internet because they
already know that singer and because they like him/her.
The big music industry complex has a tough battle to face. Profits or
recognition!? Profits and recognition depends on each other: you only have
profits when you achieve recognition, but your recognition can be measured
by your profits. How to solve the problem?
Well, even if this matter seems to be far from a solution, some
measures are being taken by the companies. Some laws have been created and
other demands are being done. Even if it is hard to supervise all the
websites on the Internet that offer music download, some people have been
being charged of piracy and arrested.
Janis Ian on her article states that the music download increases the
profit of the music industries, instead of what these industries allege.
According to Janis, when people downloads a music form he Internet and get
to know that song, they buy the CD because they already liked it and have
no way to regret buying that CD. She also states that this happens because
most of people cannot pay for a CD just to give it a try .
The MP3 movement started out with a huge audience of music enthusiasts
on the internet. The MP3 digital music format has had, and will continue
to have, a huge impart on how people, gather, listen to and share music.
The MP3 format is a compression system for digital music that helps
reduce the size of a digitized song without disturbing the sound quality.
Digital music is converted to MP3 format and made available for use,
usually via the web. MP3 files can be downloaded onto your computer from
the internet and special software, either commercial or freeware. Using
your computer and software you can convert digital music from a CD into
MP3 files can be played in three different ways:
They can be played directly onto your computer.
They can be decompressed and recorded onto a CD.
These files can be played on a portable MP3 player.
The advantage of MP3 players is that they are small, lightweight and
rugged. They are a great way to carry your MP3 files with you!
With a portable MP3 player, a personal computer, and the appropriate
software, you can do the following:
Obtain free or low-cost music from the web.
Create your own mix of music by downloading MP3 files from the web
and converting the tracks from CDs.
Listen to near-CD quality music wherever you go.
Listen to more music (up to 10 hours' worth).
If you want to convert your songs from your CDs into MP3 files, you can
use ripper and encoder software. A ripper copies a song's file from the CD
onto your hard disk. The encoder compresses the song into the MP3 format.
By encoding songs, you can play them on your computer or take them with
you on your MP3 player. The ripper and encoder software may come with your
The specific instructions will vary with the individual software
programs, but the following steps will definitely take place:
Place the CD from which you want to convert songs into your drive.
Select the track(s) that you want to convert to MP3 format.
Convert the selected track(s).
Copy the new MP3 files on to your computer's hard disk.
Now you are ready to download these MP3 files into your portable MP3
Once you have MP3 files on your computer, you can use the software that
came with your MP3 player to download the files into your MP3 player.
Again, the specific instructions will vary depending upon your software
program and player, but you will:
Create a playlist from your MP3 files.
Plug the player into your computer's parallel of USB port.
Transfer the MP3 files according to the instructions.
Once you have downloaded the MP3 files into your portable MP3 player,
you are ready to take your music anywhere. Most MP3 players are small,
lightweight, and solid-state. Because most players are solid-state, there
are no moving parts to break down or skip, so the sound quality is
uninterrupted regardless of your physical activity. MP3 players are
equipped with various types of headphones or earpieces.
Portable MP3 players can play music longer than a portable CD player.
The length of play for a CD player is about 74 minutes, the length of one
CD. However, the length of play for an MP3 player depends upon its memory
capacity, which can be upgraded on some models. A standard MP3 player can
play for about half an hour (32 MB) to a few weeks (40 GB)! Some models
can be upgraded with additional memory devices.
Legally Download Music and MP3's
Downloading music is one of the greatest things about owning a computer. However, the most popular way to do it is illegal. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) is trying to stop anyone from downloading music illegally and have recently been passing out hefty fines to prevent downloading. In the wake of a Supreme Court ruling, companies can be sued for encouraging illegal downloading, most notably and recently Kazaa. With the recent shutdown of the top music downloading networks, one has to ask:
Can I Still Download Music?
Yes, at plenty of Web sites, some requiring payments and some free. Pay sites that have licensing agreements with the entertainment industry -- such as iTunes, Rhapsody, Yahoo Music and others -- are panting for your business. Sites battling the industry such as Grokster and Morpheus -- which were targeted in Monday's decision -- face a cloudier future. While the Supreme Court sent their case back to a federal appeals court for trial, they are almost sure to lose. They and other file-sharing services that allow for sharing of copyrighted files -- and make money off it, through advertising and other means -- may fold or have to change their sites drastically.
Unfortunately these top profile downloading sites often charge a hefty fee for their access. Basic membership fees often cost upwards of $30 a month, while tracks start at $1 a piece. Alternatives have arisen that promise to give you the same amount of content but at a cheaper price.
These alternatives include: MP3-share, mp3downloadhq, legal music access, and online download network. Reviews of these programs can be found at http://music.webreviews.ca managed by http://webreviews.ca
Almost everyone has heard about the massive crack down on Internet music piracy that has been occurring over the past few years. Napster was taken down (although it has now returned as a pay service), other file sharing programs now require users to pay for a license and the RIAA and other similar organizations are doing their best to hunt down copyright offenders and put an end to their crime sprees. The consumers on the other hand argue that their actions hurt nobody, that there is no damage done to anyone by their not buying an album. Furthermore, they claim, MP3s allow them to sample a CD before purchasing it, thus actually helping sales.
I'm not here to argue the pros and cons. Basically it's not worth it, as neither side of the argument will ever see the opposition's point of view. What I'd like to do is take a look at the completely free and legal alternative to 'stealing' music. Those wonderfully talented musicians who are willing to put their creations online to download for free, solely for the joy of spreading their creations to the masses.
Free music is surprisingly easy to come by, even music by famous bands. Sometimes it needs to be 'streamed' from the Internet, meaning that you can only listen to a song while you're online, but with the ever-growing popularity of broadband Internet this is really no longer a problem. Sites such as MP3.com and purevolume.com provide free music by almost any band you can think of, although there is a large amount of it that has to be streamed and not downloaded. A search for 'free legal MP3 downloads' will reveal a huge number of pages to visit.
For something specific, try visiting the artist's website, or the site of their record label. These will often offer a few sample tracks to download for free. It's not quite as convenient as having access to every song that you want, but it's not a bad alternative.
But how about we forget about the mainstream for just a while and move towards the alternative? Towards the hopefuls, the talented bands that have yet been 'noticed'. There are a huge number of these smaller bands out there that are sticking their stuff online for any and all to listen to, just so that they can be heard. These can be easier to find, because most MP3 sites will be filled with these smaller acts. A great place to start is http://www.garageband.com/ or the aforementioned http://purevolume.com
The great thing about smaller bands is that you can often find bands that come from your local area and then go and see them play live. Being able to see a favourite band live more than once a year (or lifetime) without expending huge amounts of money and time is pretty cool. Many music search engines will let you search for bands of a particular genre in a particular area, which makes it all quite easy.
A fairly major contributor to the online music scene is the remixer. These people take other tunes and redo them, usually in a techno style because one person can do this competently. Chief among the tunes selected to be remixed are those old ditties that used to play through the simplest of sound chips on aging consoles: the video game theme songs. People now go and grab the main tune line from an old favourite and fill it out, making real the work our imaginations used to do for us to turn the single tone melodies into orchestral masterpieces. A few good places to start are http://remix.kwed.org and http://remix.overclocked.org as well as a personal favourite band http://machinaesupremacy.com
I hope this has given you something to think about. It's not hard to come across illegal MP3 rips, in fact it's often hard to avoid them, but if you give the free music scene a look you may find something completely different and new that will really do it for you. With web hosts already being penalized hugely for illegal content being stored on their servers (having an entire server taken down because of one inconsiderate user is damaging and irritating beyond belief) and moves being made to charge ISPs for the content being accessed by their users, it makes more sense than ever to get out there and grab yourself an awesomely original and completely legal music collection.
Listening to all of your favorite songs whenever you want is
always exciting. No more having to wait for it to be played on
the radio or have to go out and buy the whole CD for just one
particular song. When you can download all of your favorite
songs for free it just makes it that much better. What if you
could download the music videos to all of your favorite songs
for free and add to the excitement every time you listen to the
song? In this article I ll discuss some of the best places to
find free music video downloads and why some free music video
download sites are better than others.
As mentioned in a previous article I wrote, Music Video
Downloads, not all sites are going to be capable of good quality
free music video downloads. Some are going to allow you to
preview the first 30 seconds of a song, while other sites allow
you to watch only one song, then you must become a member to
view more. However, there are sites out there that allow you to
download good quality videos for free.
One of the bigger downsides to free video downloads, though, is
that most places only allow you to watch the video and not save
it to a file to view later. Yes, you can view it anytime you
want by simply clicking on the video and having it load in about
15 seconds. However, if there is a certain list of songs you
would like to observe, then you ll have to search through the
site to find them as oppose to having them all saved in a
Another downside to free music video downloads is the fact that
most sites contain only popular artists and songs, so the
unknown bands may be harder to find videos for. This is not to
say that the selection is small, but it is limited to more of
the current hot hits.
One of the better sites that I have found for downloading music
videos for free is www.artistdirect.com. Once you get to the
home page at the top is a button for movies and videos, this is
where you will find all of the free music video downloads. On
this page you will find the top music videos for various
categories such as hip-hop, pop, rock, and so on. Plus they
have the top 5 music videos currently, with a button away from
getting the top 600 music videos. I have found this site to be
very quick and efficient with downloading videos, but as
mentioned earlier you are only capable of viewing the videos and
can not save them to a library or folder.
One of the more common and well known sites to find free music
video downloads is at www.mtv.com. For this site they have it
set up with six different categories that you can click on. As
you click on one of the categories it brings up the top six
videos under that category currently, then you are able to
browse all the videos for that category if you please. Or to
make things easier, they have a place where you can simply
search for a specific video.
I have listed two of the more popular sites to find free music
video downloads, and two of the easier sites to search through.
If you were to conduct a search for free music video download
sites on google, there are about 131 million different sites or
pages connected to this phrase. So as you can see there are
several different places to look for the videos, it s just up to
you to find them. The two I have provided would be good ones to
start at, but feel free to broaden your horizon and begin
searching for the sites to find your favorite music videos for
