Illegally downloading music and movies is a big problem in the United States. People argue that it shouldn't be illegal to get music off of the internet and use it. The musicians and producing companies of the music and movies think way differently. The companies and artist have really good points. They get paid for selling there products and they are losing out on money. Also people that aren't paying for it are stealing and that is highly illegal. Music and movie companies have obviously talked about this problem a lot with both sides and have come to a resolution that is fair for them and everyone else. The resolution to this problem is if you do it you get in trouble. The trouble you get in is some very serious punishments. You can face up to 5 years in prison and also a $250,000 fine. That is just if you are a first time offender. After that you will be charged with even more. I think thus us a good resolution because stealing is not okay and people should be punished.
