Two-thirds of college students have no problem with theft

A recent survey shows that 2/3 college students do not think it is wrong to download music or viedeos for personal use without payment. What logic other than "I want it" leads someone to believe they are entitled to a free copy of a recording after a person goes through all the obstacles to get to a point where his work is worthy of recording, a song with music and lyrics is created, much expense is made to record and mix the finished product, and much expense to market the finished product.

It all boils down to "it is there, I want it and the technology exists to take it". The bottom line is that it is theft, and 2/3 of our students have no conscience regarding this matter.
