I guess you also think it's okay for the government to take away money that YOU worked for and YOU earned, to hand to someone who made the choice to sit home on their @$$ instead of working.
And I guess you think that the government should "give" everyone "free" health care, even if that means the doctors and nurses and hospitals and lab technicians and unit secretaries and ambulance drivers all have to provide their services for a wage that is far below what they deserve in exchange for the service they provide.
Here are the facts that you obviously did not learn in your socialist government schools: A laboror is entitled to be paid a fair wage for his work. A "fair wage" is one that a willing employer will offer and a willing laboror will accept. "Laboror" means ANYBODY who provides a service, a product, an idea .... anyone who provides time and effort.
A songwriter put time and effort into writing his song. He is entitled to be paid for that song whenever it is recorded or sung. A musician and a singer and a producer all put time and effort into creating the sound, recording it, perfecting it. They deserve to be paid for that.
Radio stations and television stations and bands and offices that play Muzak and wedding DJs and Itunes and Napster - they all pay a licensing fee which gives the writers and performers a royalty. These licensing fees allow the entity to play the recording without having to pay a royalty every single time. They pay once a year to license rights to the music they want, and the appropriate royalties are distributed.
When you download pirated music or provide music for others to copy illegally, you are depriving the people who WORKED to make this music of the payment they are entitled to. If one person bought one copy of your favorite band's new CD, then made it available for illegal downloads so that no more copies of the CD were purchased, your favorite band would go bankrupt, and pretty quickly.
If you truly see nothing wrong with stealing someone else's work, time, and effort, then surely you would see nothing wrong with your wages being confiscated to the point that you received compensation for only 1 out of every 4 or 5 hours that you work. Or ... why do you accept a paycheck at all? If one person's work and time and effort mean nothing, shouldn't you be glad to give your services to your employer for no pay?
There's no difference between illegal downloads and stealing CDs out of a music store. In every case, the people who worked for their pay have been deprived of their right to be paid for their work.
