Do copyright laws limit creativity or reward it? Would society function better without such rules and regulations? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
Some people argue that the creative sector requires copyright regulations and that these laws are beneficial for society; however, others believe that these rules decrease creativity and should be abandoned. This essay will first discuss why copyrights are essential for many artists and then address the question of how society would lose many artists due to abandoning copyright laws.
Firstly, copyright rules are important for many artists and helps them to innovate their music. This is largely because artists must earn enough money in order to spend time on new creative tracks. For instance, Madonna, who continuously innovates her music is able to spend more time on new creative tracks because she sells a large number of cd’s. If there were no copyright rules, Madonna would have been copied instantly and would not have earned so much money. As a result of this she probably could not afford to spend time on recording new innovative songs. Therefore, this essay believes that copyrights are needed to give artists the chance to be creative.
Secondly, if copyright laws were to be abandoned, fewer people, such as musicians, painters and writers, would start a career in the creative sector. This is due to the fact that these people probably would not have a chance to earn enough money. For example, the Dutch creative film sector suffers from illegal downloads since people started to use their computer to share and download movies with others for free. Because of this, many Dutch movie production companies are not able to make Dutch films profitable. Therefore, this essay agrees that artists need protection by preserving and improving copyright laws.
In conclusion, although consumers might think that copying artwork is not that bad, it actually results in a society where art forms will be scarcer. It is predicted that countries with solid copyright laws will have more artists who can entertain the country inhabitants and bring them more joy and happiness.

Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, make comparisons where relevant. Write at least 150 words.
The bar chart shows the sources of calories taken by British males of three different age groups (0-24 years, 25-49 years and those over 50).
In the age group 0 to 24 years old, it is clear that dairy is the number one calorie source comprising roughly 43% of total intake, while meat, pulses and vegetables are much less popular with 20%, 18% and 20% respectively. The males in the UK who are aged between 25 and 49 have other preferences; meat intake almost doubles compared to the previous group and reaches 50%, while dairy almost halves to 25%. Pulses and vegetables also fall in this age group to 10% and 15% respectively.
The eldest people in the category, males over 50, experience an enormous increase in pulses consumption compared to the other categories, reaching almost 75%, whereas, on the contrary, meat, dairy and vegetables witness their all time low with 20%, 15% and 10% respectively.
Overall, it is clear that every age group has its own favourite calorie source, although vegetables are not represented as favourite source of calories in any age group and remain low around 20%.
