[Note: We do not encourage any kind of piracy]
If you ever did a Google search for downloading free MP3 songs for free, you may or may not have come across the name Pagalworld. It is a massively popular website for pirated MP3 songs & more. But, it’s really not okay to download anything from there. In this article, let me tell you why.
Pagalworld & it’s content is illegal
Pagalworld does not own any rights of the content it provides. Hence, it was directly violating the Copyright law of India. The Indian government later blocked the original website but, soon they came back with a new URL. Also, there are multiple clones of this website that serve mostly the same purpose.
Although, we do not know if the clone websites are associated with the original one or not. There can be a slight variation of content in different clone websites.
Pagalworld’s content base
Pagalworld is mostly about Indian music. You can find different kinds of Indian music all over the website. Plus, it has movies too. We have listed a few of the major Categories in the list given below.
- Bollywood MP3 Songs
- Bollywood Video Songs
- Punjabi Mp3 Songs
- Bollywood Movies
- Indian Classical Music
However, as mentioned earlier, all websites labeled Pagalworld may not be associated with the main website. So, the available content may not be the same everywhere. The above list is a collection of the most frequent categories found on these websites.
Bollywood faces a huge loss because of Pagalworld & similar sites
Sites like Pagalworld, have a pretty bad impact on Bollywood. Because of illegal music downloads, Bollywood loses a significant amount of money. This money can come through either subscription/ad-supported streaming services or through ads on YouTube.
For movies, the situation is even worse. If a movie leakes online within a few days of release. The makers of the movie lose a huge number of ticket sales causing a downfall of profit margins. In 2018, there was a loss of an estimated amount of 18000 crores INR because of piracy.
Do you download Pirated content? You better back off now!
Entities spreading Piracy are not the only ones violating the law. If you download pirated content, you are breaking it too. In India downloading pirated content is a punishable offense. So, if you get caught, you will need to face the consequences of this.
- You may need to pay a large amount of money as a Fine or Penalty on law violation.
- You may even need to spend a few months or entire years inside Prison (Jail).
Piracy is like any other illegal activity. If you break the law, you have to face what comes next after getting caught. So, you better back off now.
You can help to stop Piracy
Piracy is like a social disease that has successfully developed a huge digital network but, it can be stopped. If you download pirated content, stop now and, ask the people around you to do the same. Tell them about the consequences that I just told you about. If we can join forces & push back piracy from our lives, it’ll lose it’s purpose one day. Without purpose, it will slowly fade away & we’ll be equally important parts of that change. Also, we’ll have a cleaner Internet to work with.
