  • It should definitely be legal

    I had a point reading this arguments and I found out that long time ago people shared everything like food, drink, also clothes too. But when the time goes and goes people are becoming selfish. So that they want lots of money for something like just file! And actually it doesn't make sense, when it should make sense, artist should give music files to every people who helped them to make music so that it is fair. Now artists aren't giving the files to music video editor or people who help in many different ways. So, it was unfair at the first time, due to that it don't make sense. Then sharing music is legal.
    Thank you for reading this!!!!

  • Artists deserve to be paid for what they have done

    You do not have he right to publish music you didn't create online for free. If you do, you are stealing money from the artist who created the music, and so is everyone who would rather get music for free than pay for it legitimately. Having bought one copy of a song for about $1 does not mean you have the rights to give it away to free to anyone who wants it.

  • It's like pick-pocketing someone on the street.

    Yes, sharing music online should be illegal. Record companies and artists take a lot of time and resources to create albums to put out for people to listen to and enjoy and by sharing it online you're basically stealing money right out of their pockets. The argument against file sharing being illegal is that these people already have money anyways and therefore are just being greedy by not giving away their work for free. People don't think about smaller bands who are just getting out there, who don't have the same money and resources as most big name artists. These bands must pay for everything themselves and have nowhere near the same amount of money as big label artists so therefore the money that they should be getting from record sales is being stolen from them and they're not making any money.

  • People come on!!

    ITS STEALING. To all the people on the other side: if you do not have the money YOU DO NOT GET IT that is the way it works, and if its plastered all over the internet then people will not actually buy it so the artist/band will not get money for it, a lot of people are saying that "oh, well, all the artists and bands are all rich so it doesn't matter if we pay for it" well, what about all the new-starting out bands? They will not be able to make a living and if that happens a lot then people will start realizing there is not any money in the music business so people simply will not put together bands, or write songs so there WILL NOT BE ANY NEW MUSIC!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Just because music

    People can make a lot of money, make a business out of it and can become internet famous. Other people can view it and download but that only goes for them. The people that download it can have music they can listen to that they can play anytime and, anywhere.

  • Why sharing music and movies is not illegal!

    Before the internet, people could make mixed tapes and record movies. It is true that an old law says that we should not have. But, the fact that you could buy all the things needed to do that off any shelf makes the law a unenforceable one. The artists only hurt themselves when they when after their fans. Those who download song and movies are fans. Fans are the ones with purchasing power, Ask Metallica. This extortion tactic now will only make their net gain smaller because, they are greedy and do not manage their profits wisely. In the past recording music an movies never stopped the artists from getting rich. Don't make your fans angry.

  • Pay for your music

    Due to File Sharing sites, musicians and songwriters are not getting paid. We have to spend thousands of dollars on recording, mixing, mastering, time, rewrites. It isn't going to kill you to pay the 99 cents for the track rather than steal it illegally. That is MY livelihood and MY job. Because of these file sharing sites my music is pirated before it even makes it to iTunes! Most artists these days are independent and not multimillionaires. They are only a handful on record labels - most others now have to self publish. Once the song its a popular show, then it sells on ITUNES, etc... That is how we eat. Quit stealing and pay for the music!

  • It shouldn't be illegal

    Sharing music online should be allowed, i mean, you buy an audio, its yours, so You can share it with ANYONE. Artists also get quite a lot of money by sharing it on websites and social networking websites. Artists prefer their music to be public and world-wide. We share music on YouTube and people all over the world watch it and listen to music. I am trying to say that sharing music online isn't necessarily illegal. I honestly think we can share music online with our friends and family, or as a matter of fact the public itself, SHARING MUSIC ONLINE SHOULD BE ALLOWED.

  • No

    Once the music is purchased somewhere you are allowed to do with it what ever you want. There would never be a way to regulate it and trace everyone down. I think that they need to raise the prices to off set what they perceive as a problem. This is the digital age and we have to live in it.

  • My assignment 7

    I'm doing an assignment (7th grade), so my argument is that music sharing should not be illegal because not only do the people who are listening to the music get something out of it, so do the artists.

  • No it should not.

    It has created an environment of fear where only the few controls the creativity that have colluded with elected leaders. Copyright does need reform but in its simplest form that makes sense.And also people should not be able to be put in jail just for sharing music online and that is not against the law.

  • Noooo no no

    Why is doing that why u do that no please nononoo onoononoo onon onono nonon on on on ono non n on on ononon n onoon non nno o w e need music in the buttohle please i want it in my ass please more download music online me want.

  • True Tech Natives

    We the generation who was born into a digital revolution are the first of a new breed. As more advancements unfold in the tech realm, we will continue to master and hone oir skills with them. If file sharing was illegal, then it would just appear on other sites and nets through the darkweb and the like. Some artists are even supporting the freesharing revolution, so if we infringed upon the sharing rights, it would go against the creators wishes in certain points.

  • Times Are Changing

    Laws are not going to prevent people from enjoying things, from music and movies to games and TV shows. Artists can still make money by offering a pay-what-you-can deal for their product or by just donations, and I'm sure there will be even more ways in the future.

    Look at the podcast Welcome to Night Vale for example: The makers of the podcast release it for free, get donations from the fans, go on tour for live shows, sell recordings of the live shows for pay-what-you-can, and sell T-shirts, posters, and stuff online and they give exposure to musicians in every episode. But the podcast itself is free.

    People will be happy to still support artists for making awesome things, but it's easier to do so on our own terms. Copyright prevents people from freely expressing themselves, and it is more difficult to uphold such a law in this day and age. Some laws that applied to society 50 years ago wouldn't make any sense today.

    Tl;dr: The entertainment industry needs to evolve just like everything else. There are other ways to do things in this age.

  • Technology and the Internet

    The Internet and technology have vitally changed an industry that used to be dependent on record companies supplying studio time and pressing resources. With the addition of digital audio and superior in house recording equipment, artists are now able and more than willing to record their own music and release it into the Internet themselves thereby negating the need for a record company who is ultimately taking a 30 to 40% cut of the profit off the top. And lets face it, no one really buys an album anymore, even on iTunes, digital singles out sell digital album sales ten to one.

    The proven fact is the artists who are releasing this music into the mainstream are still making more money on tour and in concert than they could even conceive to make on iTunes or old school album sales. Contemporary artists have began to realize this fact and are embracing an independent path for exposing their music to the masses.

    In Overview, the availability of artists making and producing their own music and releasing it onto the internet, combined with declining album sales. Record Companies are desperate! They are dying and have therefore have began to lobby governments to pass laws that violate our personal rights and freedoms.

    Wake up people, the government was put in place to speak for the people, not be lobbied into a weak, unpopular position by a dying industry.

  • Copyright Unattended Consequences

    Today's copyright laws strangle both innovation in creativity and has become out of control. It was initially supposed to do the opposite. Unfortunately with government intervention, results have proved otherwise.

    It has created an environment of fear where only the few controls the creativity that have colluded with elected leaders. Copyright does need reform but in its simplest form that makes sense.

  • It is just basic human rights!

    It is your property. You bought it. Therefore by human right's freedom of information, you should be allowed to share your audio information with who ever you want. It is YOUR audio and YOU bought it and therefore you should be allowed to do whatever you please with it, including sharing it online.
