WinMx Reveals All

We've just heard from Steve Mosner in East Bangor, Pennsylvania. And he's really upset.

"I am A WinMx user," he says, "and the reason I got started is because I lost my oldies station!"

Losing your oldies station'll do that to you. But Steve isn't your typical pissed-off, 17-year-old downloader. Or your typical 27-year-old, angry file-sharer, come to that.

In fact, he's 57 - which makes entertainment industry propaganda that p2p users are all just irresponsible kids look a little ridiculous.

"I bought the music I wanted years ago on LP's. Remember those?" - asks Steve. "Then I started to change.

"Eight-tracks were the new rage!!! Then they told us about cassette tapes. So I went out and bought them. Now they want me to go to CD's!! I say Bullshit!!! I've paid the price too many times to the record stores and I refuse to do it again!!!!

"So now I download them!!"

But surely that's wrong, isn't it? - we asked Steve. Doesn't it deprive the Fulsome Five record labels of their rightful earnings?

No way, says Steve, going on, "I think I have made the recording industry enough money!!

"Why do people make music anyways, for the cash? Or because they want to be remembered for what they've accomplished in this world? Or just because they love music like we all do??!!!

"I think it's because they love it like the rest of us!!

"At this point in time I am 57 yrs old, if they want to arrest me for having music that I have downloaded so be it. I'll go to jail before I give them one more dime of my heard earned money!!!"

We asked Steve if he was the only one in his household downloading.

"My son, who's 35, does," he said, "and the wife also. But I am the main offender!!!

"I feel like this wonderful music will be lost, as so much has already. People like Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye and a lot of the oldies will be lost forever, if not for the P2P system!!

"I do think they would have enjoyed to know there music is still around and loved buy us. That's what they used to do in the old days!!

"On a Sunday afternoon, go to a park an listen to a concert!!

"I miss the old shows like Andy Williams, Kraft Music Hour, Ed Sullivan Hour and I'm tired of the damn sit coms!! Most of the time I put music on, and we play cards!!

"I've found a great man on here [online]. I wish I 'd known he was around sooner, I would have gotton a lot more of his music, Klaus Wunderlich! Now he's passed on, but his music lives on.

"I've downloaded 255 songs and the music is great!!

Great stuff, Steve. We're with you. And thanks for getting in touch.
