Illegally downloaded music

punishment or no punishment?

Illegally downloading music should be punished. I think it is just as bad as breaking into someone's house.

Illegally downloading music could leave you with a fine and up to 5 years in jail. Music sales have dropped 47% and economic losses are up to 12.5 billion dollars so you have help hurt the economy if you have ever illegally downloaded music. Piracy is unfair to the artist.

I think illegally downloading music should be punished. It is unfair to both the artist and someone who paid for the music. You would not download someone's homework or final exam assignment.
