But is anyone saying it's ok for people to steal the music? I don't see that argument being made. They're acknowledging that it happens, and expanding on additional reasons why the market got smaller. Does piracy impact the music business? Probably. Is that impact overstated by much of the music business (and several in this thread)? Probably.

The impact is probably somewhere between "no impact" and "zOMG kids have killed the music business", and even if there was no illegal downloading the sales figures probably wouldn't return to the peak.
