As I am an immigrant, I mostly look to file-sharing for media from my native country. Copyright law limits the distribution of foreign media, so it is difficult to obtain physically.

This allows me access to music, which I would not normally have access to, because I would be unwilling to pay for it without trying it out first. ( You wouldnt buy a car without...

...aring is impossible to stop and modern companies need to recognise this and adapt to our new world. Most of the time I use it to check out new material before I purchase it.
