File-sharing is good for the market. It is a great way to find new products and often leads to buying other products from the original author of the downloaded material.

There is no concept of file sharing being illegal in my country (Pakistan). It is considered quite normal and almost everyone uses it. Buying music and/or films is slowly becoming obsolete. Dont know abt the next best thing but im looking forward to it :).
