And this spills into computer programs too. Out of everyone who has photoshop in the cafes, how many actually shelled out the 700 bucks for it? No one, thats who. No one would have started pirating had the music industry not made ridiculous prices.
That all doesn't make it not illegal. This isn't to say I haven't done it, but you're over rationalizing here. For example, if CD's cost $10 and illegal music is still free, people still wouldn't say "ok $10 is a fair price so I'll pay it instead of getting it free illegally."
