A car is material wealth. You gain a large sum of value in just owning the metal that it is made of (aside from the fact that it is a high speed transportation machine, highly utilized in most societies today).
A music album is intuitive wealth. A substantially less amount of it than a car, at that. This comparison is ridiculously out of proportion.
In purchasing a digital or physical copy of media, you obtain permission to retrieve a copy of the media. At best you have ownership over the plastic used to make the disc and the jewel case, but on the internet, you typically own the permission to keep your very own sequence of data just like the one they have. The artists lose exactly no wealth in freely giving it to you. You may as well have not ever existed to them.
