Many people are impacted when material is pirated because companies make less money when people essentially steal their products. When companies make less money, they cannot afford to pay their employees as much – or even continue paying people at all. This causes people to have a difficult time finding paid work in the entertainment industry – especially artists, who suffer directly as people rob them of their profits by uploading and downloading their content without paying for it. In order to protect people in the industry, the penalty for pirating any material should be much higher.

The use of social media makes art more accessible than ever, for both viewers and thieves. Behind the veil of an online alias, the identities of thieves are almost impossible to trace, allowing them to be held unaccountable for their actions. As artists try to find ways to protect their work, thieves continuously find ways to subvert this. Stealing art is easy, creating art is not.

I don’t know why professional athletes get paid millions of dollars just to entertain all of their fans. There are plenty of other people that I think should be getting paid that much, such as people who save lives and help others. I do not think that is fair that the people that assist others don’t get that much of a salary while the football and basketball players are.
