I'll buy it if I can, but if not I'll torrent it. Not like anyone's gonna care since I couldn't get it legally in the first place.

I think it'd be really cool if Crunchyroll was able to somehow make a deal with one of the Japanese online music stores to offer things such as Japanese music, OSTs and such on their online store as downloads.

I don't steal, I eternally borrow without permission.

No, but really, I used to do it a lot. But now I will buy it if its an artist i really enjoy. I only pirate it if i cant find it elsewhere, It is important to support the artists. Recently I couldnt resist pirating some J-rock music, but I WILL buy it legaly when I can have extra money left after paying off monthly bills lol.

I buy most of the music I own--even if it's music I owned previously and lost I'll re-buy it. If I can't buy it I'll look to see if there is a band/artist owned website where they offer the music for free. Barring that, I'll rip it off Youtube for low quality because I hate torrent sites.

I buy the vast majority of music.

The only things I download are things not for sale (unreleased music mostly), things so outrageously overpriced that are out of print or things legitimately free. Like mixtapes.

I will always download any exclusive tracks. I'm not buying the same album in 20 different places to get all the songs.

buying music on itunes is like the worst thing you can do if you want to support an artist. drm is killing music, folks.

I steal (yea) a lot of music but I don't feel bad about it since I'm visiting shows quite often and that's a thing were you actually can support artists a lot more. tickets, merchandise sold at venue and stuff..

I usually buy whenever I can. But if an album isn't available in the States I'll torrent it. Also, if there is a song I like that's album only on iTunes, but the rest if the album is iffy, I'll torrent it.

I usually either buy CDs from a record / an online store or digital tracks from the artist's website. In cases where I can't buy the tracks in any way, I either listen to them on Youtube / other service or download them from somewhere. If they then become possible to purchase later on, I buy them.

Most of the music I listen to is uploaded by the artist for free or they send it to me to upload to YouTube, other than this I'll purchase being as they are small time artists and need a little *umph* to get their music going.

EDIT: Here's an artist I support https://soundcloud.com/jaysways

Buy it, always. The only free music I get is when it's offered at Bandcamp and then only if the artist is new to me. More often than not if I like them, I'll return and pay for others they've done.

I download them online but if I love the songs in the album, I definitely will buy them. Especially if its from my favorite band/artist ;)

I usually listen to them online to see if they are worth buying since music albums in my county is too darn expensive XD

I buy all my music or just listen to them on Soundcloud/Pandora.
The only songs I download are the ones that the artists distribute for free.
