Illegal downloading actually is suppose to boost sells because the people downloading the music illegally wouldn't have gotten it if piracy downloading sites we're not available and help the spread of music by saying hey you should listen to this song and possible the person might buy the song or album still in a negative effect the record labels don't receive all the income

The music industry has claimed for years that digital music piracy has destroyed their potential to sell physical records in music stores and also hurt their sales of digital downloads. Lobbying groups such as the RIAA and BPI have been pushing for years for harsh penalties and tougher regulations on illegal music downloading. This new study by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre, however, actually shows an opposite trend; people who are downloading music illegally are actually more likely to purchase the music in some form. The study also refutes another common argument that streaming services such as Spotify and Pandora hurt music sales as well. The new research claims that streaming services in fact do increase legal digital music sales. Illegal downloading may not be as harmful to the music industry as once believed.

Consumers say they wouldn't buy if it weren't for piracy. Even if there is trespassing of private property rights and copyrights piracy doesn't really dent anyones pocket statistically. Sometimes I research unknown bands and I stream it on youtube to see what they soundalike before running to the store to snag a copy.

I believe these free music sharing sites fantastic. As a user myself, I think free music is the best music, plus the artists are still being paid for their work. There's no piracy and it's a win-win for the artists and the consumers. Even though the music services are getting the shorter end of the deal, they have to realize that the record companies that control them need to make money in order for them be continue to be in business. I think because of how many people use free online music services, these services won't simply end, because the record companies thrive off of all the consumers.
