Koogles is completely right - this is theft

If Mike is really in law school he'll realise that the artists aren't the only ones with a financial interest in the sale of the CD and just 'cos he's got some half-assed idea that labels and everybody else in the business should work for free doesn't give him or anyone else the right to steal. When you buy your shopping Mike, do you refuse to pay anything except the element which goes direct to the farmer? No - there are other costs and you pay the price of distribution and retailing too.

As for the frankly assinine "I object to paying so much for 2 or 3 good tracks" argument, that's just another way to try and justify the theft. If you don't like the product, it doesn't mean you can steal it. Would you steal a car and justify it on the grounds that you only wanted the upholstery so you weren't going to pay for the whole thing therefore you could justifiably steal it - what rubbish.

If you steal music this way, come out and say it - don't hide behind a mass of feeble excuses. Just post "I steal music and its financial proceeds from the people to whom it belongs". You never know, confronting your own theft and greed for music might be the first step to recovery.
