Do music artists make more money playing concerts or with CD sales?

Bands certainly make more money from concerts. Most major label contracts only pay a small fraction of each CD, and there are many reductions taken from the artist's royalties. So unless your CD sells millions of units, you're not going to make much. For live performances, however, the artist keeps most of the money. Basically this can be extended to the debate about pirating digital music: it's not going to kill the artist, it's only killing the record companies.

Why is it illegal to download music from the internet?

Because when you download it without paying, the artist doesn't get money. You make money when you sell the songs for people to buy. If you download it, you don't give the artist credit. You can be fined alot of money if caught downloading songs.
