Exactly. Freetards like Alan expect others who dont mind PAYING for
things to also subsidise his abuse of other peoples hard work.

That group are simply insane. Who the fuck are they to say what an
artist deserves for their work? If they don't like it then noone is
forcing them to buy it. It's a market price.
