The problem is in this case that it was a release the band paid for themselves, knowing full well not many would buy it, but wanted it to be a special release akin to merchandise. So why did this core group of fans who love them enough seed it when the release will make it to services like spotify? That's not caring about the band. It's a flimsy excuse to say they are doing them a favour by sharing their music when there is legal ways that will honour the bands through prs that are still free to the consumer. Tbh I'm torn about most of this stuff, there is certainly a lot of exaggeration about profit loss, but I think it effects the little Guy the most.
