Hundreds of millions of songs and videos are illegally downloaded every month and about one-quarter of all Internet users have downloaded a movie from the Internet. Research this topic and post your answers to the following questions in this Free Music and Videos discussion:
- What do you think might happen if this situation doesn’t change?
- Is downloading music or videos without paying any different ethically than shoplifting CDs or DVDs from a store? Why or why not?
- Is there a solution to this problem that could make everyone happy?
Include in your post at least two sources (books, magazines, scholarly journals, newspapers, web sites). List your sources at the end of your essay using either the APA Citation Style (Links to an external site.) or MLA Citation Style. (Links to an external site.) Then, clearly relate your sources to your essay by including the author’s last name after the sentence or paragraph where you referred to the source (Highlight or boldface the author’s last name so I can find it easily within your essay). This should be done for each source. Note that Wikipedia cannot be used as a direct source.
