American Online is one of the big name on the Internet, and many other digital companies, it actually a profit. But the company which its rivals call the “Cyber-cockroach" launched only in I992. Before that it was a small firm Control Video Corporation, and it made video games. Then Steve Case, a former Pizza Hut marketing executive arrived and took company online. Innovative, fast-moving, and user-friendly, American Online appeals people who want to surf the Internet, but who do not have a lot of experience. For the same reason “techies", people who think they are more expert with computers, look on American Online and its users. Recently, American Online (or AOL, as it calls itself) joined with Time Warner - a multi-million-dollar movie and magazine company - to create a multimedia giant. Now, AOL has begun to expand abroad. In many European countries, including the United Kingdom, it is hard to buy a computer magazine does not have a free AOL introductory offer. The company also puts advertisements onto the television, and employs people to hand its free introductory disks at places like train stations. As the internet gets faster AOL is changing. With many homes getting high-speed through fibre optic cables or the new ADSL technology, the “Cyber-cockroach" will have to show that, like real cockroaches, it can survive in almost any environment.

You are going to read a magazine article. Choose the best options for each following question.

Declan Mayes, President of the Music Buyers Association, is furious at a recent announcement by the recording industry concerning people downloading MP3 music files from the Internet. Of course, there are files that can be downloaded legally for a small charge, but the uproar is not about these: it is about illegal downloads, which constitute an undoubted infringement of copyright. However, there is a great deal of controversy over whether the people who indulge in this activity should be regarded as actual criminals. A few parallels may be instructive. If someone copies an audio music cassette for their own private use, they are, strictly speaking, breaking the law. But recording companies have usually turned a blind eye to this practice because prosecuting the few people involved would be difficult, and the financial loss to the company itself is not considered significant. At the other end of the scale, there are criminals who make illegal copies of CDs and sell them for a profit. This is far more serious, and the industry actively pursues and prosecutes pirates. Now the Music Recording Association has announced that it regards individuals downloading music from the Internet as pirates, claiming that they damage the industry in just the same way. “The industry is completely overreacting; it’ll be a laughing stock,” says Mayes. “They’re going to arrest some teenager downloading files in his bedroom – and sue him for thousands of dollars! This isn’t going to frighten anyone into buying CDs.”

Mayes may have a point. There is a general consensus that CD pirates should be subjected to the full wrath of the law, but few would see an individual downloading music for his or her own pleasure in the same light. However, downloading music files illegally is not as innocuous as making private copies of audio cassettes. The scratchy, distorted cassette copy is a poor version of the original recording, whereas an MP3 file is of high quality and can be stored – on a CD, for example. It is this that makes the practice a powerful temptation for music fans, given the high cost of CDs. What does Mayes think about claims that music companies could be forced out of business by people downloading music illegally? That’s nonsense. Music companies are always whining about high costs, but that doesn’t prevent them from recording hundreds of CDs by completely unknown artists, many of whom are “packaged” by marketing departments to appeal to young consumers. The companies are simply hoping that one of these new bands or singers will be a hit, and although it can be expensive to promote new artists, the cost of manufacturing the CDs is actually very low. This last point would appear to be the focus of resentment against music companies: a CD is far cheaper to produce than its price in the shops would indicate, and profit margins for the music companies are huge. An adult with a reasonable income may not object to paying £15 for a CD of classical music, but a teenager buying a CD by the latest pop sensation may find that price rather steep – especially since the latest pop sensation is almost certain to be forgotten within a few months. And while the recording industry can’t be held responsible for the evanescent nature of fame, given the teenage appetite for anything in novels, it could lower the prices it charges – especially since technology is making CDs even cheaper to produce.

This is what Mayes hopes will happen. “If the music industry stops exploiting the music-buying public, it can survive. Everyone would rather buy a CD, with an attractive jacket and booklet, than mess around downloading files, but the price has to be reasonable. The problem isn’t going to vanish if the industry carries on trying to make a quick profit. Technology has caught up with the music companies, and trying to fight it by taking people to court will only earn money for the lawyers.” A frightening thought.

If someone downloads MP3 music files illegally, the Music Recording Association will now______
  • turn a blind eye.
  • be indulgent towards them.
  • take them to court.
  • charge them a fee.
Mayes thinks that the recording industry’s recent announcement _______
  • fails to take into account the difficulties of prosecuting offenders.
  • makes the industry appear ludicrous.
  • will deter consumers from buying CDs.
  • will encourage resentment of CD piracy.
According to the article, it is commonly accepted that ______
  • producing pirate CDs in order to make money is a serious offence.
  • downloading MP3 files is more serious than making audio cassettes.
  • the Music Recording Association should ignore infringements.
  • the laws regarding illegal music recordings should be amended.
Why does the writer feel that MP3s are unlike copies of audio cassettes?
  • Downloaded MP3 files are generally not for private use.
  • The financial losses to the music industry are greater.
  • The price of MP3s is greater than the price of audio cassettes.
  • There is a significant difference in quality.
Mayes implies that music companies ______
  • could cut costs by making cheaper CDs.
  • should not promote artists who are unknown.
  • are speculating when they promote new artists.
  • should use different manufacturing processes.
The writer points out that the music industry cannot be blamed for ______
  • the fact that fewer teenagers are buying classical music CDs.
  • the fact that fashions change quickly.
  • the poor quality of much modern music.
  • the prices that are charged for CDs in shops.

What does Mayes think is at the root of the dilemma facing the music industry? - “_____”

  • the unprecedented speed of technological advances.
  • unrealistic legal advice.
  • its failure to adopt an appropriate long-term strategy.
  • the rapidly changing nature of the contemporary music.

… So the time has come for you to fill in your college application form. The best advice is to imagine that you’re the person who’s choosing the applicants and to ask yourself what valuable qualities you – and you alone – can bring to the college in question. every justified opportunity to present yourself in a positive light.
