The fact is and the Stinky Truth is, we here at HazzardAyre, don't. Everything we publish, post and blog and air is done by our MC (motorcycle club) or the Wolf-Pack(The AyreWolvez) or by myself, usually one in the other. Never do we just pirate somebody's stuff and repost it as if it were our own creation. It's not just Facebook either,. Movies and TV do it as well. redoux's of old TV series' to movie remakes, to airing of a article on a blog as original news copy or at least the written part of another's blog entry. No wonder the copyright police are out in force. Damn it if your going to use somebody else's music, lyrics, etc at least be willing to pony up some cash and pay the people that you robbed from. I have seen postings from everything from some hot gal who put their image or images up on dating sites, like www.pantyhosedating.uk to runs on Star Trek. I saw a posting earlier this evening from some body trying to do a smooze on the original series of Star Trek, that now CBS Paramount Studios are going after them for violations of intellectual property and establishing a theatrical showing of their TV thing called Star Trek Universe. Really and their surprised. I have also started to see some decaying on some online radio stations as well as broadcast radio stations and those producing TV ads, for using music of an artist or music publishing company. If you don't pay, you don't play. HazzardAyre Radio, through our media subsidiary SouthernSteele Media, pays roughly $50k to $200K a year in play out rights. Its done just everything shy, of killing the streaming service Live365. While I too think that TV stars, musicians and all make 300% more money and all off of royalties, from their works, but still it is THEIRS so if ya'll want to use it, pay for it. If you post it at least say its from somewhere else not post it as your own creation.
My Opinion I could be wrong.
