"When you give something to a man, or do something for him, the first time he will kiss your hands, second time he takes his hat off, third time he bows, fourth time he fawns, fifth time he nods, sixth time he insults you, and the seventh time he sues you for not giving him enough."

my first metal obsession, which occured right after the release of the incredible _Master Of Puppets_ CDatomjacked inventory cache in 1986.  I internal linkimmediately embraced the "be yourself" internal linkmeme these guys were representing in metal, before grunge hit it big.  i first heard about these guys from the people i was rooming with in a hospital when i was 15.   their first four releases were so refreshingly unglam for its time (1983-1989).  after _...And Justice For All_'satomjacked inventory cache relentlessly complex riffage, there was nowhere for them to go but sell more records.  they had proven all they needed to prove... - @Om* 1/29/2000

to illustrated their pathetic slide since the beginning of the 90's, the headlines read that they are now sueing external linkNapster.  a ridiculous  attempt to rake in more millions.  distributed internal linknetworking will hopefully undermine this entire rock star architecture to promote the many to many idea(l). if their idiocy continues, i am thinking of revoking this internal linknode and not pay any internal linkattention to their once-greatness.  - @Om* 4/14/00

Metallica's self-righteous and curiously unknowing statement doesn't take into account the fact that millions of Americans have been accessing free music for years now, and have come to see their music archives as both a right and an integral part of their lives. Nor will the lawsuit encourage artists or the music industry to explore the many alternative -- yet still profitable --  models of distribution that reflect the new internal linkrealities of the internal linkInternet. Artists have a right to be paid for their music, but the rash of lawsuits don't solve the copyright problems spawned by the Net, they simply drive them underground.

Free and downloadable music will always be available to college kids with enough bandwith -- there remain hundreds, if not thousands of music- sharing software programs all over the Web, including AIM and ICQ.

Mostly, Metallica has ensured that poorer kids or people without vast bandwidth will be cut off from acquiring music, from experimenting, from fostering new bands. Many artists have welcomed the spread of internal linkdigital music distribution, claiming it frees them from the monopolistic control (and high cost of dealing with) record companies, permits them to reach new audiences, and generates interest in new forms of music. Meanwhile, Variety reports, the record companies made record profits last year -- $15 billion --  despite the endless handwringing about online pirates and the epidemic of lawsuits.

Metallica's efforts to shroud its greed and publicity-seeking in morality is as  transparent as it is self-righteous. The band ought to get its wish. Fans might consider stopping trading, downloading -- or buying -- the band's music in any form until it permits educational, legal and artistic institutions to try to  come to grips with the new realities of law on the digital frontier.

Metallica fans were quick to discover a dose of hypocrisy in the band's recent attack on music "piracy". Many owners of the Garage, Inc. package have noticed the following quote from Garage, Inc.'s liner notes:

[I would] "stay over at his house for days making tapes of his records and sleeping on the carpet." - James Hetfield, describing his early friendship with drummer Lars Ulrich.

By allowing James to dupe his albums onto cassette, Lars was a party to the unauthorized reproduction of musical works - the same thing he's now accusing 300,000 fans of doing with his band's music. So who's really guilty, and does Lars have any right to complain about MP3 piracy?

personal space/time internal linkrelevancy: 1984 through 1989 from _Ride The internal linkLightning_ CDatomjacked inventory cache through _...And Justice For All_ CDatomjacked inventory cache.  props to their first release, while lyrically droll, their rhythm and riffage was torrid and tighter than any other at the time...
