On avg, only about 6% of a musician's income comes from album/song sales. The bulk comes from live shows. A common misconception is that file-sharing drastically hurts their income. Knowing the facts, do you now feel less guilty about pirating music?

No, I never felt guilty. I only downloaded bootlegs of unavailable recordings that we're never for sale anyway. The artists never list a penny because of me.

No, because (a) I don't, and (b) I've listened to user MrWolfe, who has explained how many *other* people it hurts when people steal music - it's not just about a rich artist, by a long shot.

No, because I haven't done it in the first place.
