Any time a person takes something that does not belong to them without paying, I think it is wrong. The people who publish works of art online put a lot of work into their art. Whether it is music, videos, books, or some other work, it is wrong to take it without paying for it. In today’s society it is nearly impossible to create and sell art without somehow using the internet.
This puts artists at risk but it is necessary for them to be successful at the same time. Some may think online piracy is a victimless crime but the real victims are the people who are not getting paid for their work.
