File-sharing is good for the market. It is a great way to find new products and often leads to buying other products from the original author of the downloaded material. More than 90% of what i by on the internet is directly related to what i have downloaded and would never have been bought without finding out about the related ...

In regard to the music industry I use downloaded material to sample music, If I have downloaded music from an artist and enjoyed it I will make it a point to see them play live. This way I veiw the recorded material as a type of preveiw for the live show.

It is unfortunate that your survey does not include any questions regarding how much/which media are consumed from regular/legal outlets.

I live in Japan but Im from Canada. I think the laws arent as strict on file sharing that they are the USA. Japan is pretty free. I have downloaded mostly movies and TV shows because I want to enjoy Western entertainment while living in Japan. Ironically enough, movies or shows that I have downloaded and liked, I ended up buying...

I believe that there is an understandable risk to fiesharing, but the reason that it is still around is that people enjoy to either sample music/games/films etc. before they go out and spend their hard earned money on said things. I mainly download from torrents to do just this. Every music track i have downloaded and liked i ...

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...
