Protection from   Piracy
Prior to beginning work on this discussion, please read all of the required resources for this week. Review the instructions below and research a minimum of five additional peer-reviewed and/or scholarly sources in the UAGC Library that were published within the last 10 years to help support your statements. Be sure to include a reference list for your sources at the end of your post in APA format as outlined by the UAGC Writing Center (Links to an external site.).

From a professional, evidence-based perspective, address the following issues supporting your statements with evidence from your researched sources.
· Explain the impact of legal and illegal downloading of music on the financial performance of record companies.
· Evaluate whether or not it is ethical to download copyrighted music for free.
o Analyze the motivations of otherwise ethical people who take advantage of free downloads of copyrighted materials.
· Explain the appropriate role of colleges and universities in addressing file-sharing amongst their students.
· Evaluate whether or not it is ethical for the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) to sue random copyright violators in an effort to instill fear in all violators.
