It's that time of year again... it's Bein Hazmanim... it's time for our usual post against illegally downloading music.

Recently, we noticed a website (no link for obvious reasons) that had posted some recent JM CDs online for illegal download. We (and others) passed the information on to the affected artists/producers/distributors who took action and the files were taken down.

We mention this to illustrate the problem. With the advent of free file sharing websites etc., it has become very easy for people to post/download music with no out-of-pocket expense. It may be easy to do, but it's still wrong. The JM market is quite small. Illegal downloading hurts the artists and people in the production/distribution chain. Support creative Jewish music and buy the CD's.
