I'll try not to feed the troll too much...
>You call *yourself* a capitalist despite confessing to stealing work and only deeming it worthy of renumeration to the artist if it meets some arbitrary scale judged by your smug self?
Economics 101 for you: There is only a limited amount of money that can be spent on entertainment, so it is FAIR to try before you buy. If you always buy the first thing you find, then capitalism _does not work_. As mentioned by someone before, it's a process of survival of the fittest: artists whose art isn't good won't make money, while artists who produce good art will.
