Thats a silly question

Of course its detrimental to artists.

It's theft. Period.

No amount of silly arguments about someone collecting sports cars or airplanes makes it less than theft. Thats what it is.

Don't ge me wrong, I'm not making a moral judgement. I download stuff myself, all the time. But its theft, and I know it.

And why should artists give away their work for free? The ultimate goal of art is not for others to enjoy it. The ultimate goal of art is self-expression. You don't work for free, why should anyone else? People put their time and effort into creating music, they should be rewarded.
