This article really helped me balance out the pros and cons of Illegally Downloading Music

Michael Field's curator insight, September 14, 2014 3:54 PM

In this article they give both perspectives of downloading music illegally. They give great points on both sides of the argument for instance when you download music you are taking someones written work which is stealing but, when people take your work they can also spread it around which will make you more popular. This article contributes a lot of information and giving the insight of how an artists perspective might be different than a customers standing point.There is one more great point for artists who are unknown it shares there music so they will get there name out there for popular artists it means there not going to get a big full payout.

This article states "Since the introduction of peer-to-peer file sharing began in 1999, music sales have dropped 53 percent as of 2013...". Downloading music illegally is a real problem for the nowadays music industry. But regulations help a bit, and if you get caught the consequences are severe, even if you made no money from the reproduction or distribution of the music. I do not support illegal downloads and I'm glad there are consequences for the ones that use them.
