how do people who are against filesharing feel about buying used CD's - since the artist makes no money on that sale?

One argument is that the artist made his money once, through the first sale, and that he would not get more compensation from the first owner no matter how much he listened to it. Thus, reselling the CD will deprive the first owner from the pleasure of owning it, and the second owner will still be only one person to benefit from it, as in the case with the first owner.

One owner = one point of compensation.
