Spotify is some kind of a solution for this, but I don´t think the artists are doing much money with it, probably almost nothing.

I used to purchase songs, albums, and movies on iTunes before; it was crazy expensive given the amount of content I bought. Good thing Spotify and Apple Music subscription are now available and streaming services such as Netflix helped as well. I save money and storage memory that I can still use for other apps on my phone.

Yep but either flac or 320 kbps mp3 files only. Most of my fav download sites are gone but a few are still around. There is an old P2P site that that dates 19 years or so that is still up and kicking.

Yes. But I pay for Spotify, I pay subscriptions for indie record labels on Bandcamp and also buy downloadable music online.

Most of the times piracy is just a way to hear it first. Or to have access to some really deep, hard-to-find records.

The artists hardly get any money from album sales anyway. So yeah I pirate music.

Most of what I listen to I can just bring up on Youtube. Other stuff I will download despite having paid subscriptions for services simply because I don't have to worry about remembering which platform they are on or where I am signed into them etc. Though that happens more with TV and film than music.

I'm not into the streaming thing. I like having the actual files

fyi: Soulseek is your friend. Stay away from torrents
