Hi guys, it's that time of day where I ask the pit shamelessly for help. I need to do a language analysis on a topic of my choice (music piracy). Well I need to do 2 actually, one for each viewpoint (for and against). The one against piracy is already finished but I am yet to do the one in favour of it because I can't ****ing find any articles. So if you know of any articles or writers can you post pl0x?

well it's not music piracy, but you can bring up the following point, where a movie gained HUGE exposure through file sharing and the producers even thanked torrents for it. Piracy has the same effect on music, giving artists wider audiences - more people at their live shows.

the official "letter" is somewhere on the internet couldn't find it at this time...

Ok guys thanks for the links but I'm not actually writing an opinion piece myself, I have to analyse persuasive techniques in an article, preferably from a newspaper.

ah... then you're gonna have a pretty hard time finding stuff like that.
