And your opinion is not evidence for anything either scientifically.

I seem to remember that the belief that record companies ripped off customers and the fact that artists get very little money from record company was seen as a big motivation or rationalization for people downloading music. Maybe it is post hoc in many cases but I am convinced that it also is a motivation for people starting to download.
