Buy or sell?

Stopping downloading would be the musical equivalent of shutting down public libraries?
(give reasons for why you buy/sell, if you can be bothered)
Update: Lulabell, you amde some reat points, but erm... I'm not really sure what Communism has to do with it!
Update 2: Mechanical - does that mean that people should only be allowed to borrow reference books from the library - nothing to read just for the pleasure of it?
(I'm not saying I agree or disagree with you, I'm just playing devil's advocate)
