University of South Florida Free Music Sharing Legal or Not Discussion

Description

This week’s discussion topic is about file sharing of music on the internet. Composers and musicians have traditionally been able to earn income through sales of their recorded works and compositions. File sharing compensation laws and illegal file sharing sites have changed this in the internet age, making it more difficult for artists to be paid for music distributed over the internet, and artists and record companies are making efforts to work with lawmakers to look at current file sharing law.Research this topic using your Information Literacy skills, find a variety of viewpoints which could help you form an educated opinion on this topic.Assigned Readings:USF Music Copyright Policy: http://www.usf.edu/it/documentation/music-copyright.aspx (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
