  • Bare naked truth about file sharing

    The first single I ever bought with my own money was Steve Miller's Take The Money and Run. At that time, it never occurred to me that I would in any way be a criminal if I made a tape of it for a friend. After all, I wasn't trying to rip off the Space Cowboy. I was only trying to share his music with friends and I was under the impression that they would be likely to go out and buy their own copies of his album. I really thought I was doing anything but taking Steve's money and running.
