Impact Of Torrents On The Music Industry

Posted at August 27th, 2016 | by Sidhantha Jain | in

The world was a happy place till the time we could download music for free, in a few minutes and without any consequences but the legal hassle between authorities and torrent sites has caused this service somewhat come to an abrupt halt. For good or worse, that’s a subjective topic and with the following few points we try to put forth our ideas that describe what we think about the impact of Torrents on the music industry. In no way we promote the download of pirated content or encourage people to support illegal activities but we are not alone who feel piracy is far from being controlled/banned.
Feel free pen down your opinion below in the comments section and share this article in order to garner more views on the important topic.
