INQUIRING PHOTOGRAPHER

By JULES IRA RUBENSTEIN

We asked readers what they thought of the music industry's recent crackdown on a young girl for downloading music over the Internet.

"Everybody does it, so it's not going to stop it from happening. Some people can't afford 
to buy CDs."

Pablo Modesto

"I don't think it's right for the child to be charged. Her parents should be on top of it. I have two boys -- if they go on the computer and they're getting the music -- the parents 
should be questioned about that."

Nancy Valentin

"I don't think it's fair for the 12-year-old to go to court. They should be looking for the 
programs that access the music rather than punish the kids."

Crosida Benitez

"Parents should be overseeing what their children are doing. They should put a security 
lock on the programs."

Jennie Matheny

"I side with both. They shouldn't go after the 12-year-olds, but I do believe that 
musicians have a right to make money. There should be some charge if you want to buy a 
song."

Michelle Lopez
