I'm pretty sure even bootleg recordings fall under copyright. Enjoy your FBI, Joe.

I don't have any evidence, but I'm pretty sure of that MTV has the copyright of all their shows. The same would probably be for the other TV channels that have shown Offspring concerts.

In the audio section with covers and B-sides I'm pretty sure that all of them are copyrighted. The tribute section has most certenly copyrighted material.

It was like KaZAa,e-mule,LimeWire etc...



Also go to official site "offspring.com" and read the band's History... check what happend in 2000

2000: The group is hit with a cease-and-desist order from file-sharing service Napster after offering T-shirts sporting the company‘s famed logo for sale on the band‘s website. The band defends its actions, claiming they were simply “sharing“ the logo with fans.

The band spawns more controversy when they decide to offer their new album Conspiracy Of One free of charge via the Internet prior to its initial November release date. Fans downloading the record were automatically registered in a contest to be awarded $1,000,000 directly from the band (live on MTV) on the day of the album‘s release. Fans who go on to buy the record are awarded membership in the Offspring Nation digital fan club, receiving exclusive downloads of unreleased material, advance ticket sales, guarded chats with the band and more. Sony Music doesn‘t agree and threatens a lawsuit. The band avoids the lawsuit by making individual singles available on their official website and MTV Online. “The reality is this album will end up on the Internet whether we want it to or not,“ Holland tells the L.A. Times. “So we thought, ‘Why don‘t we just do it ourselves?‘ We‘re not afraid of the Internet. We think it‘s a very cool way to reach our fans.”

So do anyone still thinks that sharing rare mp3s over the internet will "screw the band over" ? We do not share the official Audio CDs that you can go and buy from your local music store or at e-bay.

Yeah it was. It became a subscription service later on though.

I remember there being something like a one time fee or what have you. I believe it was always there, it started as a for-profit company, the money must've come somewhere.

But I don't know where! :o :( :confused:

If I remember correctly, I had it for completely free when it first started!

Or am I just old and senile?

Well it probably started out free to get a large base (something worth paying for).

No, Napster in its original incarnation was always entirely free. It only began charging after the courts shut it down and it sold the only asset it really had - it's brand - to the major music labels, which lobotomized it and released it as a for-profit service. It was a huge service released when tech stocks were still hot, so it attracted a lot of investment from people that figured out they'd make money off of it somehow, but hadn't figured that part out yet.

The t-shirt thing was brilliant, by the way. The band took Napster's logo and started making money off of it, putting them in a very uncomfortable position of having to sue to protect their intellectual property at the same time they were arguing in defense of file-sharing against major labels. Ultimately, I think they struck an agreement and gave the money to charity.
