It's softcore piracy LOL ohoh so funny. Anyway, yes, I think people who upload music on YT without permission are technically pirates. And people who listen to it on YT... well, what difference does it really make if you download it or just stream it? I'm not sure, there's some difference I guess. I know that many artists consider it a good way to get free advertising, though.

There's plenty of free-to-download music out there without pirating. If an artist wants (and is completely right to expect) compensation for sharing the results of his labour with you, it's theft to take it without payment. Iit's not really different from shoplifting.
 
I know lots of people do it (I understand why, and it's not for me to judge), but I don't partake of illegal downloads. I mostly buy physical products anyway, which causes its own problems (the wife's forced me to crate up my 2k+ CDs and stuff them in a big cupboard, which makes owning the physical product kind of pointless Cry).
 
 However, I do agree that the world is unequal enough already. But that's enough of my lefty politics Wink

So, you'd rather pick the fourth option, right? 

And just one more thing to all of you: we're talking about piracy in general (movies, games, books) not just music.

I'm personally completely for it. Sometimes it's necessary when there is an album I want that I can't find anywhere else. Confused 

Maybe I shouldn't have said it was the best thing ever though, because it's not in my opinion. LOL
