The largest database of file-sharing demographics ever!

The Survey Bay is a searchable database containing responses from 75.000 users from the global file-sharing mega-site The Pirate Bay, including demographics, information about their p2p habits and thoughts about the future of file-sharing.

The data is released in cooperation with Torrentfreak and free to search and use for all! Read it, use it, share it - and let us know the results! We are very eager to see what can be made with all this data.
