(I would like to say "own," but I admit that I went through a BitTorrent phase many years ago in an attempt to catch up with all the great stuff I had missed - I'm not proud of it).

Meh. I actually do operate on the oft stated, rarely true, motto of the music pirate. If I like it, I'll buy it.

I have all those songs I have on the off chance I want to listen to them some time and then I will have them. At the time I decide I will listen to this band again, I buy the record.

Is this immoral? Yes. Is it technically damaging since they won't get the three cents a stream might bring them? Yes. But, considering I usually will only listen to a song once and then decide I don't like it, no great loss to either the artist or record company. So it's on the order of immorality where you use your stack of sticky notes at work to also write yourself personal messages, IMO.
