Ridiculous. You don’t have the pay to listen to the radio, you shouldn’t have to pay to just listen to music online.
so you are saying that youtube/youtube channels need to pay royalties to the artist/copyright owners?
Better than having nothing to listen to. And I'm not defending Nintendo
Well if they can't or won't buy the CDs or are unable to legally stream I guess they're shit out of luck. I'm sure the other ways are frowned upon just like videogame piracy is.Do I deserve inefficient capitalism?
Next time, state your philosophical and moral viewpoint before accepting legality as the "be all, end all".
Remember, new laws actually get created.
That is a cool story, one that is unlikely to be possible even for the people posting in this thread.
And you know what a lot of music owners do? They license their music to be played on Youtube instead of taking it all down. Funny how that works.
It amazes me, even given Nintendo's reputation, that they haven't followed Square/Enix's direction and done this. As of right now, Nintendo makes basically $0 in the United State on their soundtracks. If they uploaded them to the streaming services they would start pulling in some serious cash. Obviously it would require some effort, writing metadata and making sure the rips/masters are good, but the opportunity is right there.
and where did i insinuate/said another thing?
