In recent years, due to advancement in technology, music is also available online to access freely or any time. There is a heated debate whether music on internet should be permitted to access free of charge or not. Some people argue that artists pour their heart and soul in creating the music and hence should not be free of cost. However, others reject to this notion. This essay will further elaborate both sides and thus will lead to a plausible conclusion.
Firstly, there are many arguments which are in favor of music available online for free. Generally, free available online music tends to discourage singers. Because of free songs available on the internet, public generally do not purchase albums and thus there is dramatically decrease in the income of singers and composers. For example, any song can be played and downloaded from web sites such as YouTube without any hindrance. Thus, internet affects musicians and diminishes their income as well.
On the flip side, not only free access to online music would provide the general public to have the golden opportunity to listen to their all-time favorite music but it will also succor the artist to get famous at no extra cost. Therefore, singers and songs get more popular after publishing on internet. Nowadays, people used to browse internet rather than using radio and television. For example, there are many younger musicians who got popular because of their presence in YouTube and Facebook.
To recapitulate, from the above-said arguments it can be concluded that benefits of making free music available online are too great to ignore.
