Alan Mitchell's insight:

I used this source because it goes into detail about the effects of pirating music and how it affects the recording and live concert industries. Wether it is a positive effect or a negative effect, pirating effects both industries. The effects may not stay the same, for example; a pirated song may have a negative effect in the recording industry now, but it may have a positive effect with a different song.

I liked this article because it talked just on the topic of there being more concerts on the rise, which to me is job safety. Meaning I will probably not have to worry as much about getting a job, since show production is on the rise. It talks about past, present and the potential future of having show production.

This article makes me excited to pursue my career in show production. Knowing people are more willing to spend money on a true experience rather than a song that can be replayed over and over. Job security!
