The reason there is content worth stealing is because most people pay for it. If the world went down the path of most people stealing, there wouldn't be enough money to make good content. (not all of it is good)
Being a musician for many years making nothing for my trouble I know that you could take all of the money out of Music and there would be *plenty* of good musicians still making music of high quality.
I was in the business when the old model applied and it was basically either make it big or get another job if you want to survive.
But, there is so much money to be made on non-piratable goods like merchandise and concert sales.
The music business has changed dramatically.
Now you don't have to be a Lady Gaga to get a seat at the table.
Granted you won't get rich but to be able to make a living doing what you love and exposing your art to your fans is what most true musicians want.
I may have been born yesterday. But it wasn't at night.
