Have you i.e. seen Gavin Harrison's post on this matter?

Although I do agree nothing at this point musicians need to live with free music though, because it's not going to stop.
But the above quote is certainly a sad, but, true aspect of how some musicians are living with it the concept of free music
I've read a number of name artists question declare they won't make more albums, because of this topic. Others will put out music, but won't tour because they have non-music income that pays more.
And it has little to do with making a profit, as much as it has to do with just not losing money. Recording at a high level is very expensive. Just trying break even is difficult.
