Question description

Online file-sharing took the world by storm with the launch of Napster® in 1999. Since then, the music and movie industries have been in an epic battle to stop people from sharing lawfully purchased intellectual property while figuring out how to capitalize on Internet capabilities. This is a complicated issue with advocates on both sides.

Topic: Online File-Sharing

Identify the various stakeholders in the online file-sharing controversy created by file sharing websites. How ethical are these services from a free market perspective? A utilitarian or deontological one? Is there a difference, ethically, between the copyright infringing activity of a music file-sharing service and those who use it? What has the movie/music industry done to stop online file-sharing? What have they done to embrace it?
