ipod is successful for the same reason all the designer labels are successful. There are a bunch of portable mp3 players which are much better, yet if you are in the high school etc you HAVE TO HAVe ipod.

Yes I did. And I stand by it.

However, if I buy the product then I don't understand why I cannot copy that which I paid for. I buy a book, I can copy it as many times as I wish but cannot sell or even give-away copies of it. I'm okay with that. Why is electronic media any different?

Also, I bought Disraeli Gears back in the 1960's. Clapton, Baker and Bruce got their royalties when I bought that album. I have absolutely no problem downloading a copy of that for which I already paid royalties.

However, if I had NEVER bought the music (or book) and had never paid the artist for their work, then copying their work is stealing from the artist. I think it is immoral to steal the work of another person and I will not do it and I will not keep my mouth shut if other people do it.

Hope that clears it up.

No, stealing our oil by those arabs is bad too. GS, you'll understand it all when you grow up.
