Response to That's not what I meant.
I understand your point perfectly but I disagree with it.
Who stays home to wait for a recording when their favorite artist is in town playing live at a local venue?
Now, I might watch a freebie myself ... but if I didn't have such a freebie to watch, I still wouldn't have gone to see the live performance. I also wouldn't BUY a recording of a live performance. If I like someone well enough to want to see them perform live ... I'll GO to that performance so that I can "see for myself" and get the experience first hand.
Now, unless other people are completely different from myself ... the artists gain or lose absolutely nothing by having someone record them and distribute those recordings for free.
