Lily didn't know that the file she shared to Ashley was illegal...
Look what I sent you! I downloaded for free!
Uh, Lily? This file is illegal....
Oh no! What do I do?!?!
Don't panic, just delete it immediately and don't share it to anybody else.
No problem Lil.
Phew, thanks a lot Ashley. I was worried there.
So, how do I know if a file or download is illegal or not?
Lily came across a free music download... but she didn't know it was illegal. Luckily Ashley knew, so she told her.
Well, usually free files are illegal.
Lily gets super scared and freaks out. Ashley tells her it's alright and just to delete it and never share it.
Hm... I never thought of it like that!
Lily was calm and deleted the file. But first she told her friends to stop using the download because it is illegal and to delete it. Also if they shared it they need to share this message to their friends.
Remember to never share files illegally , and if you don't know how to tell ask a friend or adult. (The consequences can be minor-major)
Lily asks Ashley how you know if a file is illegal. Ashley tells her that it's basically stealing and that free files are typically illegal.
People think that you won't get in trouble without paying. It's basically stealing!
Lily never thought about illegal file sharing like Ashley did before. She surely knows to watch out and never do it again.
The moral of this story is that Lily never got in trouble because she acted so fast, but that doesn't mean you won't. Take down anything illegal that you may have posted/shared. Always remember NEVER SHARE/USE ILLEGAL FILES/DOWNLOADS!
