In the music industry various artists work hard in order to make music that many people enjoy listening to They then sell their music to record companies such as Arista RCA Warner Brothers and Jive just to name a few These record companies make multi million-dollar deals with these artists with the intentions that once they distribute the artists music to the record stores they will be selling a favorable amount of albums In todays ever advancing technology music is basically being stolen off of the internet through mp3 databases such as Napster and Imesh People are able to sign onto the internet and are able to type in the name of the song and then are able to download that particular song usually within five minutes Now the problem becomes how are the record companies and most importantly the artists going to make money if their work is basically being given away on the internet These people who download music do not even have to leave their homes and they can listen to the hottest and latest music in the industry The defense stated by Napster is that they are basically advertising the music for the artist for free over the Internet The consumer is in a sense able to sample the music before they go out and buy it There are 200 million multimedia personal computers in the world that are able to download music The fact is the record companies and artists are losing money because of databases such as Napster and Imesh The main reason for this is because once the person has downloaded the song onto their computer they then can burn the song onto a compact disk and they can listen to the free music in any CD player So if they have the song on CD already why would they go out and buy it This is one of the biggest crimes going on today these record companies
