The first thing that came to my mind when I read this week’s topic is a website called www.zamunda.net. I am from Bulgaria and we use Zamunda to download movies, TV series, music, etc. Downloading this content is legal in my country and when I first came here I thought I would have to say some movies goodbye.
However, I found out that there is a variety of ways to watch movies online in the UK, without breaking the law. You may think I would say that making downloads illegal is pointless. Well, it is not. The music and movie production in my country is dying. People do not care about artist’s work; they do not respect what artists do for them. I know many talented and hardworking people who gave up their dreams of becoming actors or singers, just because it is so badly paid. Yes, it may be similar in the UK. We may say that people do not respect artists’ right here, but at least the country respects them. And at the end of the day, this turns out to be crucial.
