Re: Food for thought 3: fair pay

People keep writing on here about these stars that make millions. But I believe the smaller less well known artists and musicians, who make up the majority, deserve compensation for their art. Some utopian ideal about the future is great, but mostly I think it's just an excuse to get something for nothing. If you're not willing to go into a store and rip off something and walk out with it, then why do people try to justify downloading stuff for free? I'm not saying I don't do it, but at least I know what it is, and I'm not making some excuse with anti capitalist ramblings. You can have an opinion about how much an artist or a teacher should earn for a living, but if they're undervalued in society, which generally both these examples are, then you may hear about it.
