Students Give Opinions On Music Sharing

from the not-so-bad dept

Following a recent study that said most students don't see anything morally wrong with sharing music, the Associated Press went out to talk to students about their opinions on music sharing. They basically repeat all the old arguments, without saying too much that's insightful. One guy seems to get the basic idea, pointing out that if you download an MP3 no one is missing anything - so it's not stealing. Someone else points out the value they've found in online services in being able to discover new music that they never would have heard otherwise. These are important points that have been made to the music industry - but which they ignore (to their own peril). When your customers are telling you they get something of value out of something you try to shut down, then you know something is wrong.
