I see your point, and agree. Paying the artist is a way to show gratitude and respect.
It's just that there was so much in what this girl wrote that makes it hard to say she is disrespectful, even despite the fact that she downloaded the music. If this is a question of paying respect where it's due, i'd say she did that anyway.
