    The internet is a vast source for music, with links everywhere. It's very easy to find the song you heard on the radio or saw on television. But do you buy music CD's from shops or has that totally been replaced by the ability to download music for free?

    Yes, I still buy CDs.
    If I believe the artist deserves the money because I like the album enough I'll go out and purchase it.

    What reason do I need to waste my money on CDs. If I'm not suppose to pirate the music then why is there so much free fileshare programs, and websites that list track #s and titles.

    With this much resources in the internet I sure aint gonna start or ever.

    Nope. They made it easy to get music in other ways, cheaper, too ;D, so I'll do that.

    Yes, I've never stopped buying the CDs, I'm not sqeaky-clean on the downloading bussiness though, Just a few tracks here and there. I try to buy the CD after downloading, if not get a cheap used copy on Ebay or something.

    Never. There are just too many ways to get it for free.
    You should have started a poll.

    Granted I have a insanely larger downloaded collection than physical collection, I still like having the actual album over downloading it--the collector in me, you know?

    I'd say I buy about one or two CDs a month (even though I download like 20 a month).

    Occasionally, but only if the lion's share of the album is something I'd actually listen to, rather than just one or two songs.

    'Fraid duties/tariffs and shipping make foreign CD's out of the question. I never used to buy them even before p2p came along.

    Yuuuuuuup. I haven't bought anything in a few months as I've been spending more of my money on reading material. But when I'm on a roll... I can spend a gang of cash at the record shop. In the past couple of years I've at least hit triple digits in the amount of records I've bought.

    Of coruse I do. Without buying the CD's then how am I going to help support the bands I adore? I'm not going to drive them away because no one is buying the albums. Usually I'll only download if the Album hasn't come out yet and there arwe a few songs out that I really like, or songs that never made it to albums. :]
