Share This Article:
Last week Emily White, an intern for All Songs Considered: NPR, wrote a controversial article detailing how she acquired her music library. It lead to several critical responses, re-igniting the discussion on illegal downloading and file-sharing. She is not unlike the majority of young music consumers and I commend her bravery for telling the truth. Whilst it is clear that such activity is against the law and is a form of theft, I agree with White’s point that she can’t see her peers or even herself buying albums. From Limewire to Pirate Bay to YouTube converter, our generation has had easy access to downloading music for free at our very fingertips. Such sources and sites are the go-to places for a large percentage of us.
