I don't think admiralty has much relevance to this. :-) Joke! :-)

I've used bitorrent to DL music that I've heard on a TV show or radio so I
can decide whether to buy. If I don't like the music and won't buy it then I
just trash it, or if I like it I buy it from Best Buy or iTunes.

Is that wrong?


VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
