How does using these services affect the industry in question?
The fourth and final question that this discussion brings to my mind is; How does using these services affect the industry in question? Be it film, literature, or art, regardless of the industry you choose you must support it financially in order to enjoy its’ products. If you do not obtain said media in a legal manner, you do not have to pay for it. Some may ask “What is wrong with that?”, well first of all it is stealing, and secondly if you do not pay you are not supporting the industry, if you are not supporting the industry the artists do not get paid. If the artists do not get paid they can not make more of their particular media. After that occurs you in turn will be unable to continue enjoying the media you like, whatever it may be.
The answer to the question is the industry, whichever is important to you, is effected negatively by using any online services which I have been talking about throughout this series.
