propose a new law covering Global Internet sales (a hypothetical international law) which will help protect artist rights and ability to be compensated for creative works. Your new â€œlawâ€ needs to address these issues: 1. Artists Royalties and Compensation for Music Downloads and Streaming, both for performance and composition, 2. File Sharing law.
Present a short defense of your position on each issue and how the law supports artists rights (or not). Assume you are not bound by existing US or International regulations, but take into consideration the differences in US and European compensation and protection policies as they exist today. This â€œlawâ€ should be well written in a simple, easy to read form (no â€œlegaleseâ€ needed) and should be short and to the point. You need to cite any materials you use from your research.
You will be graded on the inclusion of all of these issues in your â€œlawâ€, as well as on the thoughtfulness of your research informed defense of your position.
