Should Free Music Downloads Be Banned?
With the development of technology, more and more people are making use of the Internet and are enjoying downloading all types of materials. Some are especially fond of downloading free music. They argue that free music downloads not only enrich their lives, but also are good for the music industry because they help increase the popularity of music.
However, from my point of view, it is not advisable to allow free music downloads. For one thing, this practice violates the intellectual property rights of musicians. For another, this will exert a negative impact on the sales of musical products such as CDs, which may do harm to the whole music industry. Without good returns, who would like to invest in the music industry?
In order that the music industry will develop healthily, we had better ban free music downloads. Let’s all start to do so ourselves.
