  1. I remember a few years before Metallica went after Napster, Garth Brooks
    made a huge deal out of stores selling used CD’s,saying that the artists
    doesn’t get paid from someone purchasing a used CD,I’m thinking really?
    This was in the days before downloading and streaming and artists like him
    were selling 10 million copies of every album and making serious bank. I
    thought that was actually worse than Metallica vs. Napster.
