Here I go with the personnel experience essay, which is some how related to my life. Starting over with the country where I live have been a hell with a never-ending hole, people say you can never starve to death even if you are illiterate or inexperienced, and I certainly agree with it. All you need to have is a wicked mind, which functions in a 2-dimensional way.
Focusing on the subject of CD burning and file sharing I would directly get to the point that we have a 3.8% economic generation from the act of CD burning, that you already have understood is called “Piracy”. From Drama to movies, Films to Theatre, music to religious songs, porn to X- movies you have everything here. A country with a per-capita income of PKR400 certainly has a wide range of disk variety sounds weird. Even the developed nations doesn’t have as huge variety as we have, a movie still in the shooting phase is released and people actually pay to watch the unreleased version of the released movie, again sounds weird.
Why I said the experience is a part of my life because I think I have been a criminal in buying and selling these pirated and illegal CD’s to avoid starvation. Can someone be so inconsiderate? The answer is yes, people sell their families to have food, and this is only an unethical act. I am not supporting piracy but I guess people here cannot afford what you call the Originals. Internet file sharing and CD burning have now been confirmed as having a negative impact on the worldly sales of recorded music, movies and films, according to a ground-breaking study released World association of music (Nora , 2008).
While the industry recognizes that other justifiable forms of competition (such as DVDs and computer games) are having an impact, the market research study substantiates the sketchy evidence of a razor-sharp rise in prohibited copying and distribution of music and its impact on the purchasing behaviour of consumers. File sharing and CD burning results in a loss to the artist who performed the music, the songwriter who originally penned the work, the music company which endowed both time and money in bringing the creation to market and, of course, the merchant.
Ultimately, the consumer is the loser. With copying unbridled, there is deteriorating motive to invest in music fabrication or risk supporting new flair. File-sharing and CD burning contributes to the slow but steady waning of the local and international music industry, Market Research focussed on these two universal practices. It found: • More than 49. 3% of the worlds population survives on the pirated CD’s and DVD’s produced in the third world countries and then smuggled to the states, the United Kingdom and other countries where piracy in banned, period prior to the research.
• Approxiamtely a 3. 4 million people from each continent illegally download music files via file sharing services (1. 8 million of these have used file sharing services in the one-month period (that is supposed to be a high ratio according to the media commission prior to the research). • File-sharing and CD burning is sharply higher in the age groups under 25 i. e. from ages 15 years to 25 years: o CD burning: 22. 7% over last six months (broad-spectrum population) as compared to 40. 5% (under 25’s)
o File sharing: 11. 3% in last month (broad-spectrum population) as compared to 26. 0% (under 25’s) The use of CD burn and file sharing has increased with the use of hi-speed internet connections, broadband connections, DSL and router based internet connections. Among file sharers, there is a net decrease of 12% in CD purchasing which they identify as being as a direct result of file sharing; this has resulted in cutting cost and has become the cheapest way to acquire music.
The study showed that 57% of the broad-spectrum population concurred, “burning music without paying for it is like stealing” (only 35% of under 25s) while 49% agreed that, “downloading music from the internet without acquiescence is like stealing a CD from a record store” (only 33% of under 25s). This means sense of crime is enhancing and people are moving towards means that are more unethical. “The study confirms that people are increasingly snug with accessing music in an online milieu. The challenge for the music industry is that a significant amount of music is being accessed through illicit channels.
The music industry recognises that its top priority is to annul the identified trend and to continue to counter positively to the online milieu. After looking at the facts, the personal experience would now have changed to a dreadful experience, people find file sharing and CD burning as cheap mean to access media, but it has a dreadful affect on the companies, the economy as whole, and an unknown fact, it causes unemployment on a much wider scale.
