"piracy on the high seas"
It could be argued that you're taking money out of the pockets of the creators. I even said that these are passionate artists that you're potentially helping to starve their children. Do people in the art industry make so little that they depend on every sale? Are we being fooled by the lavish lifestyles of these artists depicted by the media? I don't think so. They are still somehow able to afford everything that most of us can't even with piracy apparently running rampant. Again, I stress that even as a creator of art I don't feel like piracy is hurting me one bit. I have no problem with sharing my work or others sharing it.
I do sincerely feel that piracy isn't all that bad. With tech advancing at an insanely fast rate it's hard to combat something like digital piracy. When you factor in censorship some of us have no other option. I don't take my passion for music and focus only on making a profit. I focus on putting out a quality piece of myself to share with the world. If it's only about money, you're not an artist.
