2005 年-2013 年六级作文真题及范文
2013 年 12 月英语六级作文题(三篇) How to Live a Meaning Life Among all the highlighted topics, there is “how to live a meaning life?” Everyone has his or her own opinion. As the saying has it, “the greatest use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.” I cannot agree any more. If our life is just to pursue something for ourselves, we will surely feel fruitless and meaningless when we grow old. From Steve Jobs’s bibliography, we can get that the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do. Steve Jobs has brought a great many changes to our world. His life, although short, definitely outlast. That’s a life worth living. Therefore, if there is a way to make my life meaningful, it should be to find something I’m interested in and also helpful to others or the whole society. Only in this way can I keep my passion throughout my life until I finally fulfill my life. 【点评】 本次作文主题围绕“有意义的生活”,由于本次主题有些抽象,难度稍大。以下是一条可行思路: 1. 由谚语引出话题,表述自己对生活的看法。 2. 引出具体例子,作为自己观点的支撑。 3. 给出自己的行动方向,如何“过有意义的生活”。 2013 年 12 月英语六级作文真题范文及点评: 信息爆炸 【点评】 本次作文主题围绕“信息爆炸给大众带来的困扰”,难度较小。最近几年六级作文题都是紧扣时代特征, 实用性较强,不会导致考生无话可说、无理可讲。 本题型还是按照三段式: 第一段可从题中的谚语着手,引出论点。 第二段主要辩证论点“信息爆炸反而给大众带来的注意力转移、无法集中等”,可以举出生活化的实例。 第三段给出问题的解决方法。 注意在写作过程中要有理有据、条理清晰即可。 【参考例文】 Ways to Get Over Information Explosion As a famous saying goes, “A wealth of information creates a poverty of attention”. Nowadays we are in the Information Age. Some people keep complaining about distraction by the information explosion. Admittedly, the new information age has brought us so much convenience that we are allowed to get enough information just with a simple click sitting in front of the computers. Nevertheless, we are also confused, annoyed, distracted and upset by an incredibly large quantity of information. For example, when searching for something online, people are easily carried away by irrelevant information and forget their original plan. Besides, some information often turns out to be useless and is actually advertisement. Therefore, it can be time-consuming and troublesome to search information online. Then what we can do to avoid being distracted by irrelevant information? Here I have some useful tips: Firstly, make a list of what you really want before your searching. This will help you to refuse some appealing, yet irrelevant information. Secondly, find some trustful and professional sources or websites and then save and categorize them. In this case, you can easily leave some ads and useless information behind. 2013 年 12 月英语六级作文真题范文及点评:幸福的源泉 【点评】 本次作文主题围绕“幸福的源泉”,难度不大。虽然表面有些抽象,但根据题干意义还是可以迅速地将本 文分成 2-3 部分:1. 总述幸福产生源泉,不是没有问题,而是处理问题的能力。2. 阐述自身有哪些解决问 题、保持幸福的方法。


Happiness - Go for it In this long journey we call "life", everybody is in pursuit of happiness and has their own interpretation of happiness. An inspiring idea is that happiness is not the absence of problems, but the ability to deal with them, which reveals the very truth about happiness. It cannot be achieved through waiting, but only through striving. There is no way that life always progresses as we wish. Problems may occur and we find ourselves in trouble, but it doesn't mean we are deprived of happiness. There are numerous examples for us to follow: disabled people overcoming obstacles, patients fighting against disease, poverty-stricken people achieving their dreams - all these inspiring heroes. Their lives are definitely not problem-free, but they have found happiness by courageously solving problems. Therefore, it is essential to develop the ability to deal with problems. We need to muster our courage and confidence to face the fact. Meanwhile, we need to find effective ways to cope with them. In a word, if we stay strong and approach problems effectively, there will be no storm in life that we cannot weather. And after the storm, happiness is within our reach. 2013 年 6 月英语六级作文题 难度: 谚语本身的难度大于上一个题目,resist 和 temptation 两个词对部分学生有一定难度,但其实都是 四六级词汇啊!! 思路: 第一段:开篇引用+深意(这里直接写深意就可以了:生活中充满了各种诱惑,抵御诱惑才能养成 好习惯或者我们应该学会抵御诱惑) 第二段:正能量(抵御诱惑的益处,比如:让我们能专心致志去做更有意义的事情等)+举例(必 须要举例!题目要求了。) 第三段:再次强调抵御诱惑对于培养好习惯很重要+我们自己具体应该怎么做 范文: Good habits, so the proverb has it, result from resisting temptation. Or, to put it another way, in a dazzling world of myriad temptations,one can foster good habits only if his excessive desire is controlled and the temptation is resisted. It is easy for those who fail to resist temptation to go astray or get into bad habits under the influence of evil companies. A recent survey reveals that teens smoke, take drugs, and ride with drunk drivers not because they haven't thought about the risks, but because they are tempted by their peers to try new things. By contrast, those who succeed in resisting temptation can always devote themselves to more meaningful things. Take college students for example. Only if we resist the temptation of playing computer games or other meaningless entertainments can we form such good habits as reading, keeping good hours, to name just a few. In short, in fostering good habits, nothing can be more important than resisting temptation. Hence, it is essential that schools,educators and parents combine efforts to cultivate young people’s ability of telling right from wrong as well as guide them in fostering correct views on life and values. Only in this way can good habits be formed. 2012 年 12 月英语六级作文题 On maintaining trust 保 持 信 任 范 文 1 Trust is a typical topic that every one of us is quite familiar with. However it has been giving much more emphasis nowadays because it is really in a critical time for us to appeal for maintaining trust between people. As a side-effect of the prosperity of the market economy, the absence of trust is partly contributes to the dishonesty of some businessmen and manufacturers who make or sale shoddy and unqualified products to pursuit a bigger profit. It resulted in the untrusting between people. While the untrusting, in return, make it more difficult to pursuit a bigger profit for it takes more time and energy to convince people into buying their commodities. What’s worse, it may lose the potential customers and result in its collapse. It goes for the interpersonal

relationship. Can we imagine what it would look like if we live in a world without trust? It must be cold and misery. Therefore, it is high time for us to strengthen the importance of maintaining trust to create a better life. 范 文 2 As the contemporary society develops dramatically, a worrying problem has sprung up that the degree of trust among individuals has decreased. For example, when we meet a man begging for money due to his handicapped leg in the street, we are considering whether he is cheating us. Plus, in the business circle, we consumers couldn’t easily believe what the merchant has guaranteed. All these problems mentioned above are reduced to adverse consequences. Especially, in the corporate world exists the prevalence of dishonesty. Influenced by these phenomena, we, invariably, become increasing cautious about other’s guarantee, even a piece of word. Thus, this trend does much harm to the commodity economy. The underlying reason for these phenomena is that current people fail to trust each other, so keeping trust counts most, because the foundation of any relationship, whether it be with a business associate, spouse, parent, client or, friend, is trust. Trust is not something that can be built with quick fix techniques. Rather, it is something that is cultivated through consistent habits in personal interactions. 范 文 3 Trust is crucial and indispensable in maintaining a relationship. Without trust, we cannot get along well with other people, let alone cooperate with them or get help from them. People are social animals. Without interacting with other people, life would be dull and meaningless. Nowadays, the whole society is faced with “credit crisis”. We become unwillingly to believe the governments, friends, colleagues and strangers. This poses a great threat to the building of a harmonious society. And sometimes, we even believed that we might be deceived if we trust too much. But in our everyday life, if we don’t trust other people, we could live in torment. Since trust is of great significance, what should we do to improve our sense of trust? First of all, we cannot lie to those who trust us. Secondly, it’s never too late to apologize to others for our mistakes. What’s more, we should strike a trust balance between ourselves and others. “Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.” should be our ultimate goal. The perfect way to make a man trustworthy is to trust him, and to let him know that you trust him. 2012 年 6 月英语六级作文题 题目:The impact of the Internet on interpersonal communication 要求: commenting on "Dad: Hi sweetie, how was school, today? Daughter: You can read all about it on my blog, Dad" The impact of the Internet on interpersonal communication In contemporary society, our life is filled with a variety of anecdotes or stories, and the following is no exception: "Dad:Hi sweetie, how was school, today? Daughter: You can read all about it on my blog, Dad." Funny as it seems, this conversation can be naturally associated with the impacts of Internet on our life: In an era of Internet, the time for interpersonal communication is impaired by online chats or blogs. Apparently, the impacts of the Internet on interpersonal communication are diverse. For one thing, as a vital invention, Internet brings great convenience to our communication, eliminates the barrier of distance, and helps humans to keep in touch wherever and whenever. For another, it is Internet that does not enables family members, friends or classmates to communicate more in a face-to-face way. One case in point is that youngsters may spend hours chatting with acquaintances through QQ or MSN, but rarely do they talk with other face to face. Unfortunately, it we let this trend to continue as it is, the interpersonal relationship will, definitely, become alienated. To my understanding, it is advisable for people to communicate more with their families, friends and acquaintances in real life instead of merely through the Internet. Do bear in mind: Internet is just a tool.

2011 年 12 月英语六级作文题 Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay entitled The Way to Success by commenting on Abraham Lincoln s famous remark, "Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend, the first four sharpening the axe." You should write at least 150 words but no more than 200 words. The Way to Success What is success? In fact, success is a positive feeling, it is a state of confidence after we achieve our ideals So all of us will try our best to get success."If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z..Hardworking is x; y is good methods and z is stop talking and get down to work."It is said by Einstein, who is used to be a winner of the Nobel Prize. According to this Wisdom, we known that if we want to do everything successful, we must follow these ways. When we begin to study, our parents and teachers always told us to study hard. Hardworking, which is an useful way to success, is necessary for us. Hardworking, which means we should try our best to do the things. Besides, if you want to get success, we not only need hardworking, but also have some useful methods. If you have some useful methods, you will feel that it is easier to achieve your goals. What ' s more, we must stop talking and get down to work. Success is base on the actions. Actions, may not let we get success. But if we not action, it can never be successful. Regardless of the dream is big or small, the goal is high or low, from now on, swing it into action. In my opinion, if you follow these important ways to do every things, you will get success at last. 2011 年 6 月英语六级作文题 1.现在许多人热衷于各类证书考试 2.其目的各不相同 3.我的看法 The Certificate Craze Almost no one in China has failed to notice the phenomenon that a growing number of people are enthusiastic about pursuing various kinds of certificates. Taking a look around, one can find numerous examples with ease. A common case in point is that students spend a great deal of time and energy attending a great variety of certificate-oriented training courses to ensure a better score。 The purpose of acquiring certificates varies from individuals to individuals. For students, as the job market competition is becoming increasingly fierce, not only can a certain certificate prove their capabilities, but also will put them in a favorable position in the employment market and the development of their career. When it comes to white-collared workers, more job-related certificates often guarantee greater opportunities for a salary raise and promotion. What’s more, it is also a ideal way to enhance their job techniques and sharpen their competitiveness。 From my perspective, the merits of pursuing certificates are self-evident. However, we should also bear in mind that it is the practical skills, such as management, cooperation, communication, rather than certificates that guarantee one’s accomplishment in career. Accordingly, we might as well attach great importance to both certificates and the improvement of one’s comprehensive abilities。 2010 年 12 月英语六级作文题 Directions: For this part you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay entitled My View on University Ranking. You should write at least 150 words following the outline given below. 1. 目前高校排名相当盛行 2. 对这种做法人们看法不一 3. 我认为?? My View on University Ranking There is no denying the fact that it has become a prevailing trend for some individuals or organizations to rank universities. Taking a look around, we can find examples too many to list. To this phenomenon people’s attitudes differ sharply.

Some hold the positive view. They claim that ranking universities can help high school graduates or their parents to make a sound choice when enrolling in a university or college. Besides, this practice can help promote the level of higher education as a whole in that many universities will exert efforts to elevate their position. Others, however, hold the opposite view. They point out that the result of ranking is not always credible, for many individuals or institutions do it merely for the purpose of collecting money. Furthermore, some universities overemphasize the result of ranking and waste large amounts of resources. Personally, I believe that we should not go to extremes. On the one hand, it must be admitted that ranking is an effective means to encourage universities or colleges to compete with each other and improve their work. On the other hand, it should not be conducted and used in the wrong way. 2010 年 6 月英语六级作文题 Due Attention Should Be Given to the Study of Chinese 1.近年来在学生中出现了忽视中文学习的现象; 2.出现这种现象的原因和后果; 3.我认为? In recent years, the ignorance of Chinese has been prevailing among students. Some refuse to go to Chinese classes, and some read few Chinese classics. In contrast, more and more students attach more importance to foreign language study. There are three premier factors that can account for such phenomenon. First and foremost, the globalization greatly stimulates the students’ craze for learning English, which in turn affect students’ passion for studying Chinese. Moreover, fewer and fewer universities motivate students to study Chinese. Last but not least, the increasing emphasis on such “practical projects” as foreign language closely related to hunting jobs also cut into students’ time and energy. Therefore, students’ weakness in Chinese would undoubtedly not only lead to their ignorance of Chinese culture but also hinder the study of other projects. In my view, effective measures are called for to solve the problem. First, it should be made clear to the whole society that Chinese is one indispensable part of our culture and race. Second, schools should attach more importance to the teaching of Chinese. Third, students should enhance their awareness of the importance of mastering their mother tongue. 2009 年 12 月英语六级作文题 Should Parents Send Their Kids to Art Classes? 1. 现在有不少家长送孩子参加各种艺术班 2. 对这种做法有人表示支持,也有人并不赞成 3. 我认为?? Nowadays more and more parents send their kids to various art classes after school or at weekends. Some people are strongly against this phenomenon because they worry that attending art classes will deprive children of their joy and freedom in childhood. However, others am firmly in favor of this behavior because they believe art training is useful for a child' development. I agree with the latter because attending art classes benefits children in many aspects. First, art classes can help to explore children' art potentials. The earlier the children are exposed to arts, the more likely it is to find out the artistic potential hidden in them. Even if they fail to become great artists, their interests in arts, say, in music, cultivated in childhood will be of great value in their whole life. Second, art classes can enrich a child's life. Since born, children will have to face a severe competition and bear a lot of pressure. Most children are buried in piles of homework day after day, with no time to enjoy themselves, which makes their life dull and boring. Attending art classes will enable children to relax themselves and enjoy a colorful childhood. Since art classes are important in children's development, parents can send their children to art classes according to their children's interest. 2009 年 6 月英语六级作文题 On the Importance of a Name 1. 有人说名字或名称很重要

2. 也有人觉得名字或名称无关紧要 3. 我认为 There is no denying the fact that it is a controversial topic whether names are important or not. Some hold the positive view. They claim that a good name, or a name that can be easily remembered, can bring one a lot more opportunities than others. Some Chinese may also believe that a name designed according to the traditional theory of five elements can bring good luck. Others, however, hold the opposite view. They argue that a name is nothing but a code to distinguish one from another. A person “good” name may not be as successful as the name indicates. In the same way, a person who has a common or casually given name can also achieve tremendous success. Personally, I believe that both sides have something right, so we should not go to extremes. On the one hand, we have to admit that a well designed name can help a person to some extent. On the other hand, we should not exaggerate the effect of a name on a person’s fate. Anyway, a person’s success mainly depends on his hard work and desirable personalities.

2008 年 12 月英语六级作文题 How to improve student's mental health 1、 大学生的心理健康十分重要 2、 因此,学校可以...... 3、 我们自己应当...... Students' mental health has been playing an increasingly important role in our day-to-day life. Indeed, it is widely accepted that it has gained growing popularity among persons in all walks of life. There is a general discussion today about the issue of disorder in brains. Obviously, it is necessary that effective actions should be taken to prevent problems. Authorities in universities play a critical role in the situation. To begin with, schools, such as colleges or universities, can provide chances for the young men to ease their attention. What's more, some are physically strong, but psychological problems are able to bring potential threats. Teaches may have a chance to find them in advance. Besides, specialists in this field are to be required to make full preparation for cases in time. Facing the crisis, experts can deal with it in a professional way, which means they have more or better opportunities to save us than others. (学校) From the factors mentioned above, we may safely draw the conclusion that we can free ourselves from mental illness by taking certain precautions. For example, if you have pains or puzzles in mind, finding a friend to express these is a good way to release pressure. Certainly, there is little doubt that further attention will be paid to the issue.(我们) 2008 年 6 月六级作文题 Directions: For this part, you are allowed thirty minutes to write a composition on the topic The Internet. You should write at least 120 words according to the outline given below in Chinese: 1. 有人认为网络可以让学习、工作更有效率 2. 还有人认为网络让青少年沉迷,进而影响学习 3. 你对于网络的看法 In the era of information and technology, the Internet has played an important role in our society. With the Internet, it's easy to get the information we need, improving the efficiency of our study and work. We can't deny that it is impossible for lots of people to achieve great success in the modern society without the Internet. However, some people think that the Internet has a bad effect on the growth of the teenagers. The teenagers are too young to resist some temptations from the Internet. Some of them indulge themselves in the Internet and at last are lured away from the study. In my opinion, we should pay more attention to the advantages of the Internet and make the most of it. Meanwhile, we should teach the teenagers how to use the Internet positively, and make the Internet a tool for their healthy development.

2007 年 12 月英语六级作文题 The digital age 1.如今,数字化产品越来越多,如… 2.使用数字化产品对于人们学习工作和生活的影响。 Living in the digital age, we are unavoidably exposed to all kinds of digital products, such as digital camera, digital computer, digital television, and so on, which grow in an increasing categories and quantities. Believe it or not, look around yourself and you can easily find one or two of these stuffs. Here is a question,what kind of influence do the digital products bring to people’s life.? Frankly speaking, these modern digital products offer us a more convenient life than before. For example, the digital camera makes it possible to delete or correct the “unsuccessful” photo of ours, which was impossible with the traditional camera. While, unfortunately, these fashionable digital items have cultivated a generation more isolated from the real life. It is hard to imagine that a man so accustomed to the digital mobile on-line chatting can be capable of the practical communication with others. Finally, too much dependent on the digital things, human seem to be more indifferent to the real world, which we, though reluctant to admit, have to accept. Thus, as the generation assailed by all kinds of digital miracles, we might as well initiatively avoid some of them despite efficiency and comfort they can supply. Don’t forget those old days when you were going to visit an old school friend though there would be a long train journey, which, in today’s digital era, has been thoroughly replaced by the digital on-line chatting. 2007 年 6 月六级作文题 Direction: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay entitled Should One Expect a Reward When Doing a Good Deed? You should write at least 150 words following the outline given below. 1、 有人做好事期望得到回报; 2、 有人认为应该像雷锋那样做好事不图回报; 3、 我的观点。 Should One Expect a Reward When Doing a Good Deed? A great many people presume upon a reward when doing a good deed. First and foremost, there is a natural tendency to equate doing good deeds with a certain amount of reward, and reward with a certain amount of money. What is more, they maintain that since the basis of contemporary society is money, one of the major means of earning money is getting reward by doing good deeds. On the contrary, the vast majority of people assume that doing a good deed should be based on people’s personal interests. Hence, doing a good deed is fulfilling itself and reward is of minimal significance. Numerous examples can be given, but this will suffice. Mr. Lei Feng lived a simple life dedicated to doing good deeds without expecting any reward and helping people from all walks of life, yet he was remembered as one of the most successful hero of our time. Generally speaking, it is my view that we should not expect a reward when doing a good deed. We do this for enjoyment, fulfillment and other spiritual enhancement, not for the purpose of reward. 2006 年 12 月新六级作文题 Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay entitled The Importance of Reading Classics. You should write at least 150 words following the outline given below. 1.阅读经典书籍对人的成长至关重要 2.现在愿意阅读经典的人却越来越少,原因是…… 3.我们大学生应该怎么做 The Importance of Reading Classics Reading classics plays a vital role in a person's growth. By reading classic works, either Chinese or foreign, one can learn a great deal about history, geography, politics, wars and customs. Besides, as these classics are the outstanding representatives human language, reading them can enormously improve our ability to read and write and to inherit cultural traditions. However, a diminishing number of people would like to read classics now. A variety of factors may have contributed to this phenomenon, but the following are the critical one. In the first place, as the pace of life and

work quickens, people can find little time to indulge themselves in thick and serious works. They would rather read light and easy magazines or surf the Internet and do online reading. In the second place, most classics depict things far away from our real life, which makes reading them seem irrelevant. As college students, we should shoulder the burden of inheriting and developing cultural heritage. Therefore, it is essential that we should make plans to read classics regularly. Besides, we should try to influence people around us into reading them. 2006 年 12 月六级作文题 Directions: For this part you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay entitled The Celebration of Western Festivals. You should write at least 150 words following the outline given below. 1. 现在国内有不少人喜欢过西方的某些节日 2. 产生这种现象的原因 3. 这种现象可能带来的影响 The Celebration of Western Festivals No one can have failed to notice the fact that an increasing number of Chinese are fond of celebrating some Western festivals today. For instance, on Valentine’s Day, many people give flowers or chocolate to the one they love. Another case in point is Christmas. It seems that people around the country now love to celebrate the festival. A number of factors account for the phenomenon mentioned above, but the following might be the critical ones. In the first place, due to the policy of reform and opening-up, Chinese people tend to know more about Western culture and be influenced by it. Secondly, some businessmen wish to make money by encouraging people to celebrate those Western festivals. Last but not least, as traditional Chinese festival lose their attraction, many people tend to find joy in Western festivals. Though we need not criticize people celebrating Western festivals, nor can we stop them, we have to beware of the danger behind it. While enjoying the atmosphere brought by those Western customs, we might well lose our own tradition and identity. 2006 年 6 月六级作文题 Directions: For this part, you are allowed thirty minutes to write a short essay entitled Traveling Abroad.

As the chart shows, the year 1995 witnessed only about 10,000 people from this city touring abroad. In 2000, the number soared to nearly 40,000. Last year, more than 120,000 people in the city chose to spend their vacations outside China. A number of factors account for the change in the chart, but the following are the most critical ones. First, thanks to the policy of reform and opening-up, the nation’s economy has been developing at a considerably high speed in the past decades. Therefore, the people have more extra money for traveling. Secondly, other relevant state policies and the boom of touring industry provide citizens with more opportunities to go out and see the world. Last but not least, people have attached greater importance to the quality of life, thus they spend more money and time traveling and sight-seeing. In a word, this chart is a perfect indicator of China’s fast expanding economy and people’s rising standard of life. The trend of traveling abroad will further stimulate the development of our economy and broaden people’s horizons. 2005 年 12 月六级作文题 Directions: For this part, you are allowed thirty minutes to write a letter to a company declining a job offer.

You should write at least 150 words following the outline given below: 1. 对公司提供职位表示感谢 2. 解释为何不能接受所提供的职位 3. 希望予以谅解,并表示对公司的良好祝愿 A Letter Declining a Job Offer December 24, 2005 Dear Sir or Madam: I am responding to your job offer on December 20, 2005. I was informed that I would be offered the position as an interpreter for your company. I cordially appreciate your trust and I am much obliged to you for providing me with this valuable opportunity. However, I have to tell you that I cannot accept it. The major reason is that I don’t think I am the most appropriate candidate for this post. As a non-English major, though my written and spoken English are outstanding than most of my peers, I am not well trained in translation, not to mention interpretation, which, I believe is highly demanding. Maybe my performance in the oral examination has misled you. Actually, I am more interested and more competent in my own major, that is, program designing. Last but not least, I happened to have been offered such a position with another company. Nonetheless, I, again, want to express my sincere gratefulness and I earnestly apologize for any inconvenience hereby caused. Finally, I hope you can find the ideal candidate as soon as possible. Best regards. Yours sincerely Li Ming 2005 年 6 月英语六级作文 Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 mins to write a short essay entitled Say No to Pirated Products. You should write at Least 150 words following the outline given below: 1. 目前盗版的现象比较严重 2. 造成这种现象的原因及危害 3. 我们应该怎么做 Useful words and expressions: 盗版:piracy (n.) 盗版产品: pirated products 知识产权:intellectual property rights 侵犯版权:infringe sb's copyright; copyright infringement 范文: Nowadays, the problem of piracy has become more and more serious. Books, tapes, VCDs and others high-tech products have been pirated. For instance, when a new product comes onto market, most probably, its pirated counterpart will soon put on its appearance in the market, too. Piracy has caused a great loss to legitimate producers, inventors and writers in many ways. To start with, the pirated products often cost much less than the genuine ones so that they enjoy a better trading position in spite of their relatively poor quality. The genuine products, on the contrary, sell poorly. What's worse, pirated books sometimes do great harm to the authors' reputation due to some misprints. In the long run, pirated products may have a negative impact on customers. Those legitimate producers' creativity and enthusiasm may be deeply hurt by the fact that some customers are more interested in the pirated products for the sake of small gains. In my opinion, it's high time that everyone started the battle against piracy. First, customers should develop their consciousness to resist the pirated products. Second, the government should take effective measures to put an end to piracy. Finally, laws must be strictly enforced to completely ban piracy. Only in this way can we wipe the pirated products out of our life.
