This is my big question from the Oink debate.
Don't get me wrong - I totally understand people downloading music for free. It's free, it's there and you can hear albums before they're released. I can totally get people doing it for these reasons and obviously I think it's now far too late for anything to change so people will continue to download for free. So I really have no problem at all with someone who says "well, I wanted this song, I knew I could get it for free so I got it for free. I know I'm not supposed to do it but I decided I would anyway".
But what I don't get is the constant self-justifications that people come out with. If you want something for nothing, can get it for nothing and choose to take it then that's entirely your decision. But I hate people pretending they're morally justified in doing so.
