"Using illegal download sites to download a software patch, a game demo, movie trailer, or similar is legal. However, using that same program to download a new hit song or a movie still in theaters is illegal."

This shows you how to know if the video or music is copyrighted and what will happen if you download and share a copyrighted file.

Copyright infringement is a consistent problem in today's music industry. Often because of audio streaming websites stealing Artist's work without giving credit when it's due. Many sites have been sued and taken down as a consequence. This article is very authentic and useful.

This article goes in depth with the history of illegal downloading and how the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has had flawed attempts for punishing people for downloading content. They have tried to sue multiple people for ridiculous amounts of money and end up settling for mere hundreds which wouldn't even cover the cost of suing someone in the first place.

Jakob Null's curator insight, October 11, 2015 12:21 PM

This article talks about how the RIAA has fought against illegal music downloading and how it has affected CD sales in the music industry along with several methods the RIAA have taken to fight this problem.The RIAA blame music sales going down on illegal music downloading and I agree with this statement. Music is a very special thing and I believe that illegal music downloading has caused sales to go down.

Jayson Vargas's curator insight, October 14, 6:33 AM

The RIAA has been concerned over the repeated illegal downloads of albums from artists all over. Napster paved a way for people to share their files. Because of this, various platforms were formed that provided music or movies etc. to download illegally.

illegal download sites make money from corporations like google for selling ad space but Record Companies and the artist are loosing money

A'Mos Moore's comment, December 2, 2015 8:12 PM
As I observe what piracy is doing, not only to already established artists and labels but to the opportunities of upcoming artists and labels also. But realizing that they or we can't do anything isn't an option when you have to maintain a lifestyle. As said in the article, it is true that we the consumer look at these execs and think that they are just using someone else's talent to get what they want, but in all reality that's exactly what we are doing except that all we want is "convenience".

illegal downloading music causes producers, engineers, and other Audio Professional to be laid off due to budget cuts and losses

Jayson Vargas's curator insight, October 14, 5:37 AM

Illegally downloading music affects the industry in ways we don't even notice. Music companies have been focusing on keeping their established artists up top and not even searching for new talent. Without new talent, and when the artists we love so dearly get washed up or retire, we have no more new music to listen to. We have to make a change towards how we get our music and try to convince our friends to purchase music as well.

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.

In this article theres a woman by the name of Jammie Thomas was sued by a company for illegally sharing 1,702 songs on a file sharing website. She caused a crazy amount of damage to music she was sued for 222,000 dollars. She had to pay them. Now there is a point of which sharing music on site is just plain out stupid. People shouldn't steal music I know I do not I always buy my music and like having CDS to listen to. She was not alone  there was approximately 26,000 people sued for this alleged allegation. 

Jayson Vargas's curator insight, October 14, 5:58 AM

Many people don't realize the harm they are doing to artists and potentially themselves by illegally downloading music. Just think about it like this, if you were creating an art for someone else and multiple people kept taking that project and sharing it for free themselves, would you be motivated to keep doing your art? Probably not and plenty of artists feel that way. Don't get fined up to $220,000 over a $20 album or $1.99 song.

This person talks about how they use to illegally download music all the time. Then they eventually changed and decided that music downloading was bad because in college he found himself on music blogs that had links to file sharing sites. Whats incredible is this guy was in a band and they would of been extremely happy if people were downloading there music at all they were signed to fearless records which if you do not know them they are pretty great. He now uses his Ipad and has subscriptions to Spotify and Hulu and is paying for them.

Alot of people download music. I believe the risk is far too great just to hear a favorite song. Your life could instanly change.

Kevin Nieves Rodriguez's curator insight, October 10, 2015 3:27 AM

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.
