The Ethics of Copying or Downloading Music.

Is it ok to download music for free? Rabbi Belsky:"Rabbi Moshe Feinstein ztl said that it's not permitted to copy any item that is being sold by the creator of that item. Every time you copy it, you're taking away sales from him. Anybody who downloads it, copies it, or does something else is really just turning someone else's money into ashes. And that's really the bottom line. It's taking something from someone else. " Any comments?
