Success comes in different levels - while I have been successful, I have never seen monetary compensation as the barometer for my success. I do expect compensation of some sort though.

Cliché - Nothing worth having is easy.

I agree - creation does not equal demand for your art. But if it is put up for sale, it doesn't mean that you should steal it.

As far as the business side goes - whether you believe certain music or musicians has value is of no consequence - when you steal, you are not just stealing from an artist. You are stealing from everyone in the chain and robbing them of their livelihood. Studio personnel, marketing people, PR, the list goes on and on. I'm not talking major label either.

BTW - You do pay for water and right now, the sun is free.
