Q: There have been a lot of public discussions on whether or not people should be punished for downloading music and movies illegally. I believe governments shouldn’t punish people for such downloading for the following reasons.
First, regulating illegal downloading is practically impossible. Nowadays, myriads of music and movies are being uploaded on the Internet and a number of people are enjoying them. If governments want to punish such downloading, they have to regulate illegal uploading at first, but it’s really difficult because illegal uploading come out one after another every seconds.
Second, music from illegal downloading sometimes cause all the rage. These days, many people enjoy making short videos using music that is downloaded illegally and uploading them on SNS. As a result, some of music which are used in such videos have become all the rage. Musicians may profit from illegal downloading.

Q: There have been a lot of public discussions on how the value of a college education will continue to decrease as technology improves. I disagree with this opinion for the following reasons.
