Do you download/upload songs from Internet?

Most of the music companies these days are facing huge losses. The reason that said is the pirated copy of songs and music, are easily available on internet for free, then why will anyone pay for the same thing, that is easily available for free? Sorry to say but even I am in the same boat. Even I don't buy any music CDs or MP3. I just download it for free online for free. However, I am trying to leave this habit of mine, and have succeeded upto great extent till now. How about you, do you like downloading and uploading songs from internet for free? From where do you get all those stuffs for free?

I have a friend that has a lot of illegally downloaded music. In my opinion, he is not really stealing because he could never afford to buy all that music anyway, and even if he were a millionaire, he has a lot of stuff that he has discovered that he'd never have thought to try out by buying the CD. In other words, had it not been for the systems that enable him to download that stuff, a lot of great music would have gone undiscovered in the first place. Music brings a great deal of enjoyment and enrichment to his life, as it does for many. I wouldn't want the karma of the record exec or RIAA official that would want to take that away from him. If I were an artist I would find it so gratifying that people were deriving enjoyment from the fruits of my toil, it would hardly matter that I didn't get compensated for it every time.
