Yo, I don't think any of you know what really goes on in the music world. Nor do you realize that not all musicians are overly wealthy. I can tell you first hand that I am trying to get an album out myself. Do you have any idea how hard it can actually be when your songs are free to download? Especially if you want it to be successful? And altho i truly truly am about the music, i am hoping to be a professional musician. It is very hard to pay to bills when you arent getting paid for your profession. Downloading a song or 2 to get a taste for the artist is understandable...i support that. However, it is NOT a "little" issue.

I think that downloading is okay because if celebrities really didn't want it, then they would find some way to shut it down!! plus, they ahve enough money to loose songs on the internet!!!
