If you have Netflix and have time this week, before answering the below questions, watch Jared Leto’s 30 Seconds To Mars Documentary, “Artifact.” Very interesting and informative: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/21/30-seconds-to-mars-artifact_n_4317818.html
Do you think that downloading/sharing music for free using peer-to-peer (P2P) software (such as The Pirate Bay or Kickass Torrents) should be legal? Why or why not? What is your opinion on sites that sell music cheap from countries like Russia (such as Legal Sounds or Mp3 Million)? Since such applications have been available online (since the inception of Napster), have you seen a change in your personal music buying habits? Explain your thoughts on this topic. Also, if you do not feel comfortable discussing your personal downloading habits you do not have to.
