Well, we do work for a living, thank you very much. Very hard, and usually for the love of music.
No one is going to go along with the Marxist principles the pirates are fantasizing about. The Soviet Union and it's collapse proved that those ideas are doomed to failure every time.
And you seem to be forgetting something: Piracy is illegal
. Everything else is just rationalizations
You're breaking the law
when you take music without permission. And it's being done not because of any failed business model, but because you know you can currently get away with it.
If you don't like that, then convince your elected representatives to throw away intellectual property law.
Otherwise, stop whining when someone rightfully prosecutes you for dipping your hand in the cookie jar when you were warned not to.
