Now private individuals willing to swap will soon be charged

The association of the record industry, the RIAA, wants to finally achieve a success against the annoying file sharing networks with a new strategy. According to the Wall Street Journal, private individuals are now also to be observed

So far, the success of the RIAA's measures has been limited . The record industry continues to complain about a drop in sales, which in their opinion is largely due to the distribution of pieces of music on file sharing platforms, in addition to unlawful copying of CDs. Accordingly, last year the music industry had to accept a decline in sales for music CDs for the first time since 1983, when the first music CDs were released Provide exchange. Sony Music and Vivendi Universal in particular are said to have spoken out in favor of exemplary charges. The new campaign is heralded by statements from well-known artists who are committed to protecting their copyrights. It remains to be seen whether this action will break the community's willingness to exchange.
