There are mixed opinions about P2P systems especially when it comes to music. Peer to Peer systems is about sharing resources between computers and other devices so they can work in harmony with each other. They are able to support one another by providing power for processing. They can increase the bandwidth for networks and they can create storage space for disks. All important components when it comes to those who have a need or desire to tap into different types of music. These are the components that are going to allow for the transfer of music from one computer which may be the provider to the other computer who is the recipient. P2P can be used in many different categories such as for the lending of money.
The Value Of Free Music
There are many reasons why an individual will download free music. One that is highly important is for when the need surfaces for music for video editing that can be for a wide variety of reasons. One of many examples is when someone wants to create an educational video. It may be on any topic but is meant to impart information to its viewers. The video will be made, then to make it more interesting background or intro music may be edited into the video. These videos can be expensive to make if a professional was needed to make them. However, an amateur can make a very impressive video with all the resources that are available to them today. This includes being able to source out free music that comes with no license or copyright issues. If those making important educational videos had to pay for these resources then there would be a lot fewer videos made, and a great number of people would be deprived of easy access to some of the education they may want or need.
The Perception Of Free Music
What had become a controversy when it comes to music is that those who wanted music for any purpose would no longer have to buy it, if they chose not to. Instead, they could just rely on a P2P system to download from those who were offering music at no cost. The perception was that this was going to dramatically hurt the music industry. As time as progressed, there are many who no longer feel this is the case. One particular study showed that individuals who enjoy free music downloads do not buy any more or use any less music than those who do not download music. The consensus is that the market for free music and buying music is smaller than the market is for the creation and segmentation of it.
