BUS 311 Week 1 DQ 2 Tort or Crime

Short description

Read the article and view the video (the links are listed under Week 1 Additional Learning Resources Required and Week 1 Multimedia Required) to the Pahler v. Slayer case. Respond to the following questions:

1.    Did the Pahler court use the same reasoning as used in Bailey v. Eminem? 
2.    Should the court’s decision in Pahler be different because a young girl was murdered? 
3.    Recall the difference between a crime and a tort. Based on these two cases, analyze and discuss whether artists should be held liable for the actions of their fans. 

Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’’ postings. Do you agree with their analysis?  Discuss with at least two of your classmates’ the ethical issues raised in this case and if you think the courts’ decisions in both Bailey and Pahler were correct.
