Recent developments in technology mean we can all listen to music when and where we want. Certainly, these developments have created jobs for people in the digital music industry, especially in engineering and in factories,’ she says.

Which one is the above: a claim, a positive view, or a negative view?

I see two positive claims for you.

The first claims that people get what they they want
The second claims that jobs have been created for people.

Do they sound negative to you?

The question is:
1) Positive view
2) Negative view
3) Claim

I was in two mind between 1 and 3.

You say it's #1, yes?

It is #1 because it is positive. A claim is simply something someone says is true, but it might not be true. In this case, the statement is true, so it isn't really a claim. It's a fact.

Thank you so much FD.

How about the following emboldened parts? According to what you said, both of them are negatives views, I should think.

1) A large number of people download music illegally just because everyone else seems to be doing it – but really, 2)they ought to consider what consequences their selfish actions could have on other people, in this case, loss of employment.’

I agree. The first describes an illegal activity while the second describes selfishness. Both of these are considered to be negative.
