    1- It isn´t fair for for the workers of this industry but the fact is that prices of cd´s before the piracy weren´t very competitive.
    2- c
    3-no
    4-i don´t usually buy music but i neither do it before piracy.
    5-making prices of authentic cd´s more competitive .
    6-not end at all vbecause is easier to donwload at home than go to buy it but it will be a less serious problem.

    1. they sell the devices that allow us to download and copy music and video, and the originals are far too expensive so downloading and copying is well worth our while.
    2. b although not very often
    3. yes but not often
    4. I think they should adapt laws to protect the rights of both artists and consumers, for instance websites where you can download music and films legally for a reasonable amount of money.
    5. Absolutely, or at least, it would be reduced to a minimum

    1. What do you think about music/video piracy?
    I think it isn’t such a big crime.
    2. Do you think that piracy is a crime?
    Not really. ->answer d

    3. Have you ever download music or films by internet? How often?
    Yes. I do it when i want to watch a film and i can’t go to the cinema
    4. How often do you buy in a music shop?
    I’ve only buy one CD in all my life. I download or I borrow them
    5. What would you do to fight against piracy?
    I dont know
    6. Do you think that if music or DVDs were cheaper the piracy would end?
    No. I think this is stupid i will continue downloading things (i never bought anything in the manta) and if i like a lot one thing, i will buy it. Downloading things is a kind of “tester” to see if you like it

    1.It is something very unfair for artists because it is their work, but the reality is that cd and dvd’s prices are very high in the market.

    2.I would call illegal more than “crime”.

    3.Sometimes I download music or films.

    4.I buy music or films when they have a good price and when the original ones are worthy to buy.

    5.One of the solutions could be reduce the prices of cds and dvds.

    6.I think it wouldn’t end at all but people would buy more.
