ME! an IMVU employee? you got to be smoking crack! you said:

"Yes there are many of these types of sites and oh yes, the music industry IS cracking down on them..Does Napster ring any bells? Other of the so called Free sites most likely pay some kind of fees to someone...or have gotten permission to put it up..if not,then sooner or later you will find those sites shut down also."

GEE! would that include iTunes? they are pretty much out in the open, and they let me download music for free! AOL music? are they breaking the law? Limewire? these are not underground sites, they are public sites, so tell me the music industry isn't aware of them?

I don't see anything being done there? If I but a CD from the store...I paid for the friggin music! it's mine to do whatever I want with it.

As far as virtual money not paying my rent, now I know you need to get a grip. i.e. you cannot be a dev and a reseller at the same time on the same account. It's in the IMVU rules. sure, there are 'resellers' that sell credits for 'real cash' but not everyone does that. I don't!

I sell my products for virtual credits and virtual credits purchase my virtual goods, subsequently there is no profit (what you consider profit) being made.

You're in an endless struggle, IMVU music is there to stay. Go ahead and bring down the empire, lol. Because in it's demise you will be a part of it, and your martyrdom will have been in vain because 100 years from now, no one's gonna give a rat's ascii anyway!
