It is more than that though. Without downloaders the demand for uploading would not be there. Both go together.

Honestly, there is always going to be an active filesharing community. the way forward is to reduce the amount of filesharing that is happening. Until the BPH's and the RIAA/MPAA lose their mid 20th century mindset and offer better distribution systems more in keeping with the modern digital age, that is simply not going to happen.
