______________________________________________________________________________This story violates commandment number six and maybe even number four. It violates them because for number 6, you’re downloading music you haven’t even paid for. It’s basically like walking to a music store and stealing the disc /album yourself. In the end, the artists don’t get paid, and you probably could get arrested. And for commandment number 4, like I explained earlier, it’s completely stealing to just download it for free off Limewire, or any other illegal music site. I think this article is a great example to show what happens when you pirate/illegally download music from the internet. It (the site) was closed and sued, and the illegal music downloaded cost over a billion dollars. What I’m saying is, basically this site and its users have stolen and used proprietary software they haven’t even paid for.
