MEDIA PIRACYIT’S ALL A CRIME
THE QUESTION ABOUT PIRACY
What negative affects has media piracy had on the American
- One of the things I did to narrow the question I came up with
was to keep my question geared towards a specific area which
is America. Also instead of just saying effects, because there
could be negative and positive affects I just focused on the
negative part of piracy. My argument is basically stating that
even though many people
I think the most important point/argument that I
am trying to make is that media piracy is not
something that only affects the producers of media.
It also affects the people who don’t do because the
prices of the media rises and someone that they
know may also get them in trouble by being fined or
put in jail. So media piracy affects the criminals and
the producers but also innocent people. This is a
whole society that media piracy is affecting.

SHOULD MEDIA PIRACY BE LEGALIZED
I came up with my question by first doing some pre searching.
I wanted to keep my question centered on how media piracy effects individuals.
First question was: what would happen if media piracy was legal?
I believe that music piracy should not
be legalized because it promotes
stealing in such a free manner. Piracy
in the music industry has lead to
problems within the economy as well as
money loss for artist. Stealing is still a
crime and those guilty should be held
Money loss for artist
Negative effects on the economy
I answered my research question by finding
evidence to back up my thesis statement.
Within my sources I found information about
how piracy within the music industry has had
negative effects on the US economy
