Torrents hurt up and coming bands that are just getting started, and whose members aren't wealthy.

False.

Bands make their money from concert gigs.

It hurts those who are signed with a mega recording company like Sony or Warner Bros.

Stealing is not illegal because you are getting something for free, stealing is illegal because it deprives someone else of something.

Downloading music does not deprive someone of something.

Thus, it is not stealing.

What's the #1 rule of usenet?

But seriously....this is the best way to download. Constant download speeds as big as your bandwidth and no uploading.
