Anti-Piracy comments don't get modded down bad approaches do.
All I see in your message is what accounts to 'It is too wrong cuz I said so'. Show me some numbers (non cooked preferably, oh wait sorry how about lightly cooked?) that actually represent real loss instead of imaginary every download is a lost cd(yeah cuz I wouldn't have just bought the song by itself) sale and nobody who downloads buys overinflated figures. Also quit acting like people are depriving these artists of something honestly most of these people wouldn't buy music even if there wasn't a way to get it for nothing. Those who would usually support the artists anyway by going to concerts or buying the song or album if they like what they downloaded.
