The truth is that there are no absolutely good or totally bad phenomenon. Right way: “The culture of digital music consumption must be changed because the creations of musicians become worthless due to activity of web pirates and people stop valuing music according to its merit .” In this example of thesis, I’ve narrowed my argument to consequences of digital music download on culture of music consumption.I’ve also focused on the fact that main harm for music industry present web pirates.In the latter example we can easily see that the writer is against free music download because it affects negatively on the work of music industry and he is going to prove why in the main body.
