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.

I like this article but it seems to be someones opinion rather than facts backed up with proof. This article was informative as well. It describes how illegally downloading music does give the artist a lot more popularity. Not many people can afford to buy albums. I have only supported 1 artist in my lifetime. I can relate to the people who illegally download music. I agree that there are more disadvantages to downloading music illegally than advantages. I find this article reliable because even though this is a blog, it still has a different perspective on this hot topic. The publisher also mentions a few of the advantages artist get.

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.

Pro: This is great because it puts a conciquence to a bad decision 

Con: This is only going to make hackers more in tune, they are going to find anyway they can to get around this 

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.

Studies show that digital music piracy does not displace legal music purchases in digital form

Layne Giese's curator insight, November 11, 2016 2:04 PM

I thought this was an interesting study, but it is so hard to find out the real truth when it comes to things like this. Sure people can say they simply would not buy music if they didn't obtain it illegally but who knows. I never take information from studies/surveys about topics like this too seriously but some very valid points were brought up and I do see some truth behind it.
