free streaming: threat or menace?

All I know is that "free" music ... obtained by loan, by download, by giveaway, by magic ... has cost me a fortune! I've discovered a multitude of artists i would have never heard of or listened to otherwise, and gone on to purchase their actual, no kidding, physical CDs. And pay for downloads, often of songs I'd already heard (via streaming) or downloaded (via nefarious means).

Perhaps this only further identifies me as an dinosaur in this post-Internet-comet-impact world of the music business. However, I don't feel that I'm alone, so any time I hear a label rep or artist or lawyer make a blanket statement that "free music is bad" they pretty much instantly lose my support.

A shame, too, because I've been a Crimson fan for years.
