It's funny that you said what you did Mike. I had written and then took it off that doing what a lot of people do with these songs is a like like helping to further distribute the song and give it more aire time. For free.
And the problem with your line of thinking is that you didn't ask the author's permission. If the author wanted the "free advertising", then they won't have any problem giving permission. Most people are too lazy to ask, though. Just like Sickone, they think, "I'm doing him a favor. Where's the harm?" The person or person's who can make that call is the author of the work.
Billions of dollars in revenue are lost every year to piracy like this. It's just too bad that the cost of suing and attempting to recover from lowlifes like Sickone, who know they are doing something wrong and do it anyway, is too high. But, it is the world in which we live. Too lazy to do something, steal it. Ethics? No such thing anymore. It's just "all about me and what I want, and the rest of you can just go **** yourselves."
