How many of us have been involved in downloading a song off the internet, or even having our roommate burn us a CD of downloaded songs? How many of us have ever payed any money, besides the cost of burnable CD's, for this music? I think we are all guilty in one way or another. Grokster, a downloading service was forced to shut down after a piracy case was filed by Hollywood and the music industry for stealing songs and movies online. I can imagine how upset I would be if i was a music artist and no one payed for my music, they just stole it off the internet. I think we all would be a little upset if we didn't get payed for our work. Even though, we still do it. Not to mention this can't be good for the economy. There isn't any revenue going in, or coming out of this.
