You're characterizing web technologies as freedom loving people, and characterizing content creators as corporations bent on power.
In reality, web technology is controlled by huge financially powerful corporations hell bent on ultimate power.
And yes, entertainment media is also largely controlled by huge corporations.
Where you are wholly misguided is in thinking you are on the side of freedom and human rights by doing the bidding of one huge (web) corporation, and assuming that all entertainment is produced by evil corporations, and not by ordinary freedom loving individuals.
In short, you've bought, hook, line and sinker the dehumanizingpropaganda fed you by people who are profiteering off the back of ordinary musicians, film makers and journalists.
You think you don't have to feel guilty because you are hurting evil corporations, you aren't stomping on the rights and freedoms of ordinary creative people.
You're grossly wrong of course.
