Hell No!!!

Free downloads (except when approved by the artists) are simple theft.

I'm not enough of a musician to have recorded, but i do hold hundreds of copyrights on illustrations, poems, and stories, and I damned sure want to get paid for my work, as I'm sure 99% of people want to get paid for their work.

Stealing music is no different than walking into a store and shoplifting.

You make a good point. I don't know what the answer is to such a widespread problem, but people should at least stop and think that when they get something for nothing, that means someone somewhere is getting nothing for something, and that isn't fair.
