I am from the Middle East. I have no legal means to obtain the latest TV shows and movies in a timely manner, and the only alternative I have is file-sharing. I am also willing to pay for the content I produce, however only if there is a way in the future to pay the artists only and exclusively. I refuse to pay distributors and...

having a clue on the next big thing but I do know that when the companies drop their prices i will be only too happy to drop file sharing and begin buying. I still support the artists and other people if I particularly like a CD I downloaded i will go out and buy it, same with movies and whatever else as I do believe in support...

"I personally use file-sharing as a means to access material such as music and software in a readily accessible form, that is free of silly DRM restrictions. It allows me to try before I buy thats not to say that i purchase everything as there is a lot of rubbish produced by artists and software developers alike. Thankfully I do...

...mous services like Tor as people begin to fight back against un-thought-through legislation. I download music I like, and I buy music I like. In a perfect world artists would get paid a proper wage from sales as well as concerts and not be strangled by the greedy record labels who cant accept change. The fact is large companies...

As i live in Serbia where laws are made to be broken, there is no much control or need to worry about them. This is situation in this moment and who knows what will happen in next few years. My opinion on file sharing: Art in general is not made to be sold...it is made to be enjoyed in. This is not time in where artists make t...

My only comment is that, while file sharing can be detrimental to some organizations, its helped me discover various films and artists that I likely would never have found had their material had not been available on the internet. Ultimately due to peer to peer file sharing, I have ended up paying artists and companies for thei...

...hard to compete against free material. I think the producing companies has to adapt and give more value to things they sell. Better and more live preformances b artists and a very good movies with nice special (for example Inception, Avatar and the Lord of the Ring movies) effect are best watched at the cinema. I belive to rec...

File-sharing is a great way to find unknown topics of interest in music or film for free leading to official, tax-paid shopping, I think. So whats the problem? Succesful artists make enough money, anyway. Any attention will increase sales.

I think file sharing is an amazing thing that we should be grateful for and can actually benefit artists (although not record labels/film companies) by helping spread their work and making it easy to access. With a lot of artists who I have paid to see, I have done so because I downloaded their album through file-sharing and the...
