You allude to the fact that you are involved with the music industry. I think your involvement makes it hard for you to see this issue clearly. I am a musician who has had to work crappy jobs for months to pay for instruments and equipment which I use to go to a coffee shop or bar to play for very little money (if not for free) because I love to play music. I see music lovers neither as consumers nor as the enemy.
