That's why they have the user's steam id as part of the error message. They can simply pull up their records and see if they bought the game, if not

Who pays for promotion, recording costs, and the costs of all the people who help an artist make an album. It is unfair for the management to front all the money and then people support only one person in the operation.

If an artist doesn't see the value in a label, they don't need to have one, and can get all the profit they want.

Edit - OT

The artist can make the album in his basement. All a label does is control radio play and commercials so that they can dictate who, and what becomes popular. That is why music is crap on the radio, it is all product. Independent musicians never had a chance because large labels controlled distribution AND advertising on the radio.

Now, with the internet, artists are capable of promoting themselves, and are doing so in large numbers. They have no need for a label, and that is what makes the execs so angry. Their perversion of music into a monopolized industry is over and they can't adjust to that.

These artists that never stood a chance before are now opening labels online, and even distributing their releases for free. It is about the music and not the business, which is exactly how it should be with art.

Big labels can keep pressing carbon copy clones to $18 discs and playing them 15 times per hour on some god awful radio station, I won't be listening.
