I download most of my music these days, simply because I can't afford CDs right now. But since I mostly bought used CDs before, the artists aren't missing out on much money, and the stuff I like, I evangelize about at every opportunity, leading to some people to buying the music (I have friends who turn to me for music-purchasing advice, since I'm up on all the new stuff). Which is all a roundabout way for me to rationalize stealing music, I suppose, but I feel the net result is good for the artists I like the most.

For instance, Stereolab--I think the new album, while not as great as their work circa 1994-6 (Transient Random, Mars Audiac Quintet, and Emperor Tomato Ketchup are all nearly perfect), is still a vast improvement over their past two studio albums, and I'm a-tellin' everybody to go out and buy it.
