What did the Government do to fight against smoking in the past days? They just told us to stop smoking by give publicity to us through TV and newspapers. They also suggested the restaurants to set up a non-smoking area. Surprisingly, they never stopped selling cigarettes.
Recently, the Government is planning to force the tobacco companies to print six types of harmful pictures on their cigarette packings. However, I think this method is useless and it is a waste of money. Why don't ban the tobacco companies from producing cigarettes and stop selling cigarettes?
It is a fact that sharing pirated products is illegal. However, some of the people share something illegal through Internet. They used a P2P file sharing software which is called BT (Bit-Torrent) to share and download MP3s, movies and so on.
Why do they like to do that? Some of the people may have no enough money to buy CDs and watch movies, and BT gives them a way to fulfill their needs. Besides, BT is free of charge, convenient and fast. So, they choose to download movies by using BT instead of buying tickets to watch movies.
Until now, more and more people use P2P file sharing software to share and download pirated movies. As a result, the film companies and cinemas lose their incomes.
Anyway, we should respect the intellectual property. Do not share pirated files.
