iIllegal music download
The topic I chose was illegal music downloads because its a big thing happening today. People are taking music and getting it for free rather than paying the money for it. I feel as if it is wrong and is stopping the people from getting sales and money, but on the other hand it is saving money in the pockets of the buyer. Why not save money if you could.

This article goes over a few things the music industry has done to slow down the illegal download world. It talks about one of the popular sites Limewire which was pretty popular when i was towards the end of middle school and so many people were complaining when they shut it down. The percent of illegal downloads has dramatically decreased over the years thanks to free streaming apps.

Why The Music Industry Should Be Thanking Illegal Downloaders

Why The Music Industry Should Be Thanking Illegal Downloaders | iIllegal music download | Scoop.it
Next month, people who download music illegally may start getting anti-piracy warnings from their Internet Service Providers. If recent research is any indication, maybe they should be getting "thank you" notes instead.

Turns out that people who frequently download music without paying for it actually end up buying 30% more music than everybody else, according to a study from the National Assembly at Columbia University. This isn't the first research that has shown file-sharing to be beneficial to artists, but this comprehensive study blows yet another good-sized hole in the conventional music industry wisdom.

John Sullivan's insight:

In my opinion I think illegal downloading should be legal.  In the article it says that they make profits still.

Antonio Abbatiello's curator insight, October 9, 2014 3:34 PM

This article talks about how the music industry is persecuting people who illegally download music because they are not paying for it but in the mean time these individuals end up buying 30% more music then those who do not. This is a credible source because he cites his outside sources and he is a technology journalist. Companies like napster actually helped the music industry grow faster.

Rachel Crosley's curator insight, October 11, 2015 1:19 AM

This is another article that details how much more music those who pirate music. This is different from the first article in the way that it offers a different perspective as well as a different way of presenting the statistics. I appreciate this article because it came from an actual study that was performed by an actual university.
