SV: [Powderworks] Semi-MOC:Promos & royalties

Even if they once did receive royalties, these records will never be re-issued so whatever money they get from them they already have. I can't see why copies of things like these should not be traded. I say trade and copy anything that is not available to buy from retail or the artists themselves.
On a similar note: Is there really a difference between buying a second hand CD and making a copy of it, from a royalty point of view?? Food for thought...
