What are your guys views on the issue. Being not a walkman person myself, I don't have one. Would it be true company is going for it for a buck and the Ipod product is seen such as iconic must get product.
One would struggle to load that much legal Mp3 onto the walkman. One would probably not purchase all those songs themselves via online download (legal payment online) or their own CDs. So its either copying from pple they know, which is piracy or some of it is copying/converting from their own CDs which again is piracy within some countries. Or the probably the easiest one is pirate it off the Internet.
Is it ironic that one side you get big coprorations arguing about piracy, the other end you got big corporations profiting from it. This isn't limited to walkmans either, but all the devices and softwares that supports it.
