Piracy is Harmless?
Share

Piracy is harmless? It seems like we discuss this everyday on social media. What is ok to use, what is not ok to use. Who do you ask for permission, or are you someone who just takes content without asking? What photos are copyrighted, and which aren’t. Even the government is trying to catch up to create rules and regulations for online content.

Well, a Brooklyn-based band called Ghost Beach is trying to figure out what YOU think about Piracy. They have a billboard up in Times Square which directs you to a website where you can download their entire album for free, OR you can go to Itunes and buy their album. It is entirely up to you. Then they ask you to tweet using two hashtags for the way you chose to get their album.

I think this is great way to bring some attention to piracy, not just in music, but also on the internet in general. I am always going out of my way to ask for permission for before using content, but I know there are many people out there who believe that it is on the internet so it is anyone’s to use.

So in your opinion: Is Piracy Harmless? (Great article TechCrunch!)
