Round 1: Acceptance
Round 2: Presenting all arguments (no rebuttals by pro)
Round 3: Refutation of opponent's arguments (no new arguments)
Round 4: Defending your original arguments and conclusion (no new arguments)

It's a common misconception that downloading music and video content off the internet is the industry's biggest threat. In this debate I'd like to introduce a new concept-- that music and video piracy is a gold mine of profit.

First and foremost, I'd like this debate to be intellectual and consist of a strong pro who will argue against my points. I'd like this debate to be a resource for many who would like to learn about the sides of both pro and con of piracy.
