My daughter (18) and a lot of her friends listen to music on Youtube, very few of them download albums or songs from pirate sites, even though they can and are able to do that. The reason is simple - a simple google-like search gives them song they want. They even don't use sites like Grooveshark, where the quality of some music uploads is better.
And they really don't care about 24 bits, 96 kHz, analog-digital sound wars. They just want to listen to music they like.

Face it, old folks, new generations don't really care about these "improvements" - they are used to laptop speakers and cheap earbuds.

Considering this company, I've never even heard of 'til now, has been sued according to wikipedia's entry on them:

"... has been sued for copyright infringement by all the major music companies, and the suits were active in January 2012. The major companies are EMI Music Publishing, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group and Universal Music Group.[3] Concerns about copyright usage have prompted Google, Apple and Facebook to remove G**********'s applications from Google Play, the App Store (iOS) and Facebook platform respectively"

I need clarification as to how the previous mention of another site earlier in the thread was deemed a violation of TOS #9, banning a member for two days, yet this isn't.

I've never downloaded anything illegally, in fact I've never even heard of any of these companies, I have to look them up each time they get mentioned, but if simply mentioning "they exist" is a violation of TOS #9, then the rule should be applied uniformly. IMO, I also think that TOS #9 is poorly worded if simply mentioning they exist, yet not advocating their use, is considered objectionable. That's not how I read it at least.

I am simply asking for clarification; I am not in any way opposing the rule itself.

mzil - and why is mentioning Youtube all right, in light of TOS#9 & 2-day banning of one member?... (a lot of copyright infringement going on YT...)

That's a good question. I don't know, but I'm certainly not the one to ask because I know very little about these sites in the first place and also because I still don't have confirmation on if even mentioning them by name is considered objectionable. I'm asking for help from the site's administration to spell it out for me.

I didn't know YT was a violator also; if told not to use them, by the sites administration, then I won't.

I think the difference is that Youtube at least attempts to remove offending material when pointed out to them.
That was my impression as well, but like I said I don't know much about it nor do i set the rules. I just want to know/understand what the rules are and I will gladly follow them.
