Just think of people who live in poor countries and their yearly income is no more than 3000 - 4000 $ per year!!
They have to spend that money on food, family, and other important expenses, but they also would like to listen to music and read books, are they worse than people in developed countries? Pop stars are having billions of dollars on their accounts and have no idea where to spend it.
I find it hard to believe that anyone would even try to justify downloading other peoples’ music, movies, games, books, etc. But apparently there are lots of people who try. Several common reasons are they don’t want to pay for the content because they think they are entitled to it for free, or because they want to have it and they can’t afford to pay for it. They may also think the company has already made enough money and so they don’t need to make more.
Another common reason is that some companies and artists intentionally delay or restrict the areas where their products are released so people don’t want to wait for the products to become available in their area. Also, some people justify their actions by believing it’s okay because they only want to watch or listen once, not over and over again.
