Chapter 8 Lab: Issue

Person 1: Downloading music off the internet is wrong! Musicians are losing money because no one buys their CDs anymore.

Person 2: Revenue from the sale of music CDs hasn’t gone down at all, actually. Record companies only want you to believe this to make you feel guilty that they aren’t rolling in more dough.  A real musician or musicians do what they do because they love creating music, not because they want to be rich, so they can shut their traps. And even though there are a large number of people downloading music for free, there is still another large group who buy music from online music stores like iTunes, which brings in millions of dollars a year.   QED.

Person 1: Oh snap!
