I agree. I'm just saying that for my own purposes, I will buy the record. I can't control what other people do, and if the band--the only one making money off of it (although, I suppose the label and other people involved need a say, too) don't care, then they're clearly not in a pinch.
The same can apply to buying music used. Technically, you are not supporting the band by doing so. But I mean you do what you can.
