Take Justin Bieber for instance, he started on youtube singing covers, he was a pirate of those songs, but some guy saw potential and turned him into profit.
They don't loose money with piracy, it's an investment that allow them to control the market.


It's an interesting point imo...

Singing covers for no money is not piracy. It falls under fair use.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
