What makes this really bad is that the copyright maximalists are pushing an agenda that will completely limit our liberties, and that's why Rick and the Pirate Party really deserve our attention.
The Worship Software Suite is the perfect tool for recording your services, editing the audio, and distributing it as a podcast. It includes RipEditBurn Plus, Power Record, the Noise Reduction Effect, Sound Effects Set 1, and ePodcast Express. And we're selling it for under $100- that's a bargain!
I set up an Adwords campaign for Industrial Audio Software related to our podcasting products. It is bringing zero results and it is consistently going over the budget I had set. I've spent quite a bit of time refining the keywords and locations and days the campaign runs, but with absolutely no success.
If you have had a success, let me know. If you can give me some clues, that would be great. If you are trying to sell something, please don't- I need to understand Adwords myself, I don't need sales pitches at this point.
And- those people who are sharing files? They are the same people who buy more music, CDs, DVDs, go to more concerts, movies, etc. Maybe we should look at them as being the most valuable customers instead of calling them "pirates".
The church, 600 years ago, put people to death for using the printing press. That did not stop the printing press. The film and music studios hate what is happening and have taken the place of the church 600 years ago. There are better ways than eliminating safe harbor to get money to the creators.
By the way, I've spoken with Mr. Buckley a number of times on the phone. He told me that he is being paid by the record industry. Yup, he's a lobbyist.
My sound files are free on soundcloud. Distribute them at will as far as piano music on safe-xchange if you like. I expect no monetary gain from that.
I have a regular publisher as of last Wednesday, that I handle myself, and my niece is a paralegal studying to be a lawyer. She did my living will,and handled some other things as far as trust fund for my life insurance so my children will not have to pay large inheritance taxes and wait for probate.
I am far from being in it for the money,except printed music should be bought and if a performer usues it for iTunes ,etc,all I want is a very reasonable Nat King Cole era 1%( my role model for pricing after reading about all the money I was robbed of as a copyist,lol).
Best of fortune to you!
This will be a great opportunity to present ourselves to the world. Please click on the link- you will have to do a login to vote, but it's quick and easy. Here's what we'll talk about:
Pirates and Musicians
"A quarter of a billion people use the file sharing networks every month. That same quarter of a billion people has been shown by studies to spend 25-35% more on movies and music. That's a pretty damn good market, and it is one that has not been addressed directly. Safe-Xchange has developed a way to appeal directly to that market with legal files that allow them to connect with their favorite artists and films. Come and hear about our approach and let us know what you think!"
Please help us get there!
This was brought to mind by the situation with Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. It now appears that the flight might have been hijacked. That means 239 people may have died from one single act of piracy.
A quarter of a billion people share files every month, and I'm sure that turns into well over a billion acts of what the record industry calls "worse than piracy". I haven't heard heard of any deaths coming from that. In fact, the people who are sharing files are the movie industry's most valuable customers:
This always reminds me of the church putting people to death for using the printing press. It didn't stop the printing press, and it won't stop file sharing. The correct approach is to use file sharing to connect with the people that are sharing files.
My only concern is copyrights, and that is only because I have had two problems with plagerism. I am of the mindset if you can't beat them ,then join them and become better at their game.
