aarrhhhggg! (pirate noise)

was thinking the other day, about piracy.

i was not just thinking of mr depp in makeup and a silly hat, tho i have wasted plenty of time on this thought previously, but on music piracy.

the footnotes @ the end of sense & sensibilty say that willoghby wrote out sheet music for marianne. music (which was expensive to buy) was copied out by hand by the 'end users' and their peers. this was apparently something that happened in many households,

how different is this from the music piracy that goes on today?

that's so true, especially since the people uploading music for torrenting etc aren't doing it at any profit to themselves! they're basically doing the same thing, just digitally
