Torrenting Music
I chose this topic because this has become a serious matter in the past couple years. There are thousands of songs and movies torrented everyday and it is very hard to stop. Torrenting music is very important because it is stealing. Many people might not think it is because it is so common now but, it is very much so stealing. Musicians need to make money off their music and people are stealing it by torrenting it from the internet.

Some students get away with pirating music through the use of torrents and other illegal downloading sites, but many don't realize the impact it has on musicians.
liam vonelbe's insight:

Torrenting has gotten so huge over the years and people act like it is ok. In reality, this has a huge impact on musicians. They are trying to  make money off their music and people are just torrenting it and not paying for it. Which is basically stealing from the musicians.
