In my opinion, illegal downloading of music and movies is hurting the record company--and their profits gained from the artists. Sure the company had worked hard on creating the albums for the artists, writing songs, shooting videos and all that. And then boom, and online downloading website just kills the money that were supposed to go in their pockets. Aside of the profits for the companies and the artists, what's the harm?
However, what do you call an act of taking something illegally from someone while knowing it is forbidden? Well I don't know about you, but I call it stealing. Even though it's just another way to get the music you like, you are stealing away the money that are supposedly and rightfully the music and movie creators. Of course, we all know that it is wrong to download stuff off of the internet illegally and everything, yet we keep on doing it. Ever wonder why?
Well, I think that lots of albums contain an amazing track that everybody loves and completely adores. However, the rest of the album is filled with, well, in a more straight-forward way, plain junk. And what happens when customers only like the one and only amazing piece in that album? They tend to only get that one song out of the whole thing. And guess what? Those illegal sites come in real handy. And the more they do it, the less they care about all the profits for the producing companies, followed by the discovery of the downloading of movies, video clips, etc.
Admit it, we still do it, we all do. We seek for convenience on top of everything else, and screw those artists over--big time. Some of them get paid not much more than the minimum wage, even when they produce fantastic music or movies. Perhaps creating those artistic pieces is they passion, yet we are just killing their chance of making more of them by stealing. And even though we are here to talk about all the negative things on illegal downloads, deep down, we are just a bunch of hypocrites who do the same thing. Again and againSource(s): Jenn 小烏龜 (國外學生)
