I assume people will want to get paid for their work. And this will not change. As we see it on the music market, most music consumed today has not being paid for.

Yes. And what is the problem with that? Before the net for most people nearly all the music they had was on tapes that had not been bought in a shop. Artists are still making money and producing music.
The music market dropped back to the revenues of 1993. Profit might even be worse. Of course this does not come to a surprise. If everything is available for free, less people will pay for it.
