Taking a Stand Dear Senator Allen; I feel that the United States government should not become involved in regulating on-line sites such as Napster. I feel this would greatly affect my core democratic value of The Pursuit of Happiness . This is because when I am on-line I am happy. I support this claim with two pieces of data from Napster teens vs. the Move to Stop the Music Swap written by Laura Stepp. In the article “Zach Carter, a Fairfax County high school senior, is mad. So is and Allison Rager, a senior in Montgomery County. What’s got both hot, and many young people like them, is the ongoing attempt by the big daddies of the record industry to shut down Napster, the wildly popular, music-sharing Internet service.” And the second piece of data to support my thesis is from the same article, “ the big five companies control 80 percent of the business, everything from record sales to television appearances. They determine which songs are released and may decide on just one single for radio play.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
