The sad extent people go to to justify stealing music. They all sound like they're trying to convince themselves that it's OK as much as they are anyone else.
My current favourite is using that recent Maiden story about planning tours in South America because they realised South America are the biggest music pirates.
"Would they rather I buy a CD, or steal a CD, share with a bunch of other freeloaders, and hopefully we all like it enough to come to a show."
Totally valid. I know for sure that Porsche would rather everyone stole 911s so that there's the potential they have to buy bespoke parts when it breaks down.
