Hooliganizing music via the internet is illegal in most places. That's a pretty good reason right there.

Availability is a big one. It can be hard to find a particular album locally. Sure, a rarity can be ordered but often it's at greater expense and hassle.

Price is another. I have purchased albums off iTunes for $8 that would cost me $14 for a physical cd. I buy enough music that I try to stretch my dollars where I can no matter whether I'm shopping new, itunes, or the used bin.
Jaco died for our sins so that modern bass players could be free to play more and be heard.
