The illegal downloading of music has become very popular amongst digital citizens. Although this is convenient for the consumers it leaves the record labels and artists with a giant whole in their budget due to low record sales. 

Frankie Sinatraa's curator insight, October 11, 2013 3:56 PM

The supreme court is very serious about not downloading music on the internet, they have given out fines to college students caught downloading music. A College student that was caught downloading music was fined 250,000 dollars.

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.

Vinny Mele's insight:

I feel that, he diserved more than 18 months, what he did was cyber grand theft. 18 months doesnt bring the hundreds of thousands of pirated films to justice.  This was a slap on the wrist for him, seems to look like he doesnt care what so ever!

MediaFire is a simple to use free service for that lets you put all your photos, documents, music, and video in a single place so you can access them anywhere and share them everywhere.
Vinny Mele's insight:

I like this idea, do not get it wrong, but i think 6th grade is a little too young, to be starting lessions on pirating.  I feel that that should be a mandatory class for more older kids.  They need to understand that it isnt right and it does have an impact on the industry, as well as it is a crime
