(Not) Stealing Music

I guess I'm just a good boy.

I don't download music illegally. I buy it on CD or purchase it from iTunes. Before iTunes, it was only CD's. I never had Napster on my computer. Still, I never gave anyone a hard time if they downloaded illegally. It wasn't my problem. Often, when people (mostly my age) find out that I purchase music from iTunes, they can't believe it, and ask me why. "Because it's not wrong" is usually not a valid answer. Why do I have to feel awkward about doing what should be the norm? If someone has to be mean about it, shouldn't I be the one making them feel bad?
