This is exactly what I believe, and this is the way I choosed to take 
for my own music.

If you want to listen to my music without paying, this is fine with me. 
Actually, I'm honoured that you like my music and pleased to know you're 
listening to it.

But if you really appreciate it, you'll care for me, and maybe 
eventually make a donation.

I know this topic is subjective and I don't want to start another 
flamewar, but I wouldn't like to receive money from people just because 
that is the only way they can obtain my material.

Obviously this approach doesn't work if you plan to buy a Ferrari with 
the money earned from your artistic career, since people will stop 
making donations when they'll see you wearing Dolce & Gabbana.

But I'm not interested in such lifestyle anyway. In fact - feeling 
guilty of living in a society that kills innocent people on my behalf to 
take their gas - I've decided to sell my Punto and not to buy another car.

p.s. For those who didn't get it, my previous post was meant to show one 
of the many contradictions that arise when you're stuck with an old mindset.
