Do you download/upload songs from Internet?

I really want to stop music piracy, unfortunately  - Hello friends, am sure, even you agree to it, and want to leave this free downloading of music, as its a crime. Lets try from today itself.

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 would say iTunes and youtube are the best currently for me. What I can't find on the tube, I'll go to iTunes.

Nice said. But that is a kind of excuse. If we don't download it from internet, it is possible that we will try to buy, and it will automatically stop piracy.

sometimes i buy music CDs, album , but most of the time i download it :P it's becoz i can't find where to buy the CDs. I love indie bands and wanna support them but it is just too hard to find places to buy their CDs. I seldom when to gigs coz i'm studying n i dont have times. moreover, the bands i like don't perform where i'm staying right now

Yes, i do. I download songs from the internet. Most of the songs i'm downloading are those songs that are not available here in our country so i have no choice but to download them than to spend a lot of money from import. I don't upload songs though because it's too tasking. I don't think my internet is fast enough to upload a large number of files and for what?

I download alot of music. But I defend it with that the music I listen to is really hard to find and that if I find something that I really like often buy it on cd/vinyl, I really do. But honestly I couldn't care less about the music companies losses, but I DO feel sorry for the artist. Both because of people download their music and the many artists who gets crappy record deals from their music companies.
