On today’s show I will be talking to my fellow student *Melissa* regarding the serious issue of downloading illegal music.
Interviewer- Hello *Mellissa* you’re a young teenager I was just wondering why you feel it’s okay to download music? *Melissa* - I think its okay to download illegal music because it’s really expensive to download good music but I do feel if more people accepted the fact they had to pay for it then downloads wouldn’t be so expensive Interviewer- If they were your favorite artist wouldn’t you feel happier buying their album from the store? *Melissa* - I think I would, I don’t know it depends on the persons respect for the artist I like music but I’m not too fussed about the people Interviewer- I mean you wouldn’t walk into a shop and steal food would you?
Or walk into Tesco and steal a huge TV? So why do so many people think itâ€™s okay to download music thatâ€™s not theirs?
Link *Melissa*- because its expensive, its an expensive thing and if there are programmes available online and its really accessible people are going to, Interviewer- Many teenagers are unaware of the results; this could include a prison sentence. Downloading illegal music also takes the credit away from the artist themselves. Interviewer- There are also benefits of buying music, which include getting pictures and the music, is also better quality. *Mellissa* Thankyou so much for all this insight. Whoever has been listening I hope Iâ€™ve helped raise awareness on downloading music the whole point of this was to encourage everyone to buy music so artists can get the recognition they deserve.
