Studies show that digital music piracy does not displace legal music purchases in digital form

Layne Giese's curator insight, November 11, 2:04 PM

I thought this was an interesting study, but it is so hard to find out the real truth when it comes to things like this. Sure people can say they simply would not buy music if they didn't obtain it illegally but who knows. I never take information from studies/surveys about topics like this too seriously but some very valid points were brought up and I do see some truth behind it.

Demetrus Scott's insight:

Pro: This is great because it puts a conciquence to a bad decision 

Con: This is only going to make hackers more in tune, they are going to find anyway they can to get around this 

Jakob Null's curator insight, October 11, 2015 2:12 PM

This article talks about the Supreme Court's ruling that there are now serious consequences for illegally downloading music and that an adult will be charged by the law if their child illegally downloads music. The articles goes on to talk about examples of people who have had to pay for illegally downloading music and the sites there are now that have helped with the illegally downloading situation. I believe that this law was a great law to pass and that the sites provided now such as Pandora and Spotify are great ways to listen to music without illegally downloading it.
