P2P users buy more music

THIEVES BUY MORE MUSIC: The music biz isn’t going to take this sitting down. A new, Google-supported public opinion survey conducted by Columbia University’s American Assembly suggests that users of unauthorized P2P file-sharing software buy 30% more music than those who don’t. Other findings, as summarized by Ars Technica: Americans overwhelmingly oppose the use of disconnection and rate-limiting as penalties for unauthorized file sharing. Eight in 10 Americans believe that it's OK to share copyrighted content with family members, and six in 10 extend the same logic to friends. But only a small minority of Americans—between 4-15%—say it's reasonable to upload copyrighted content for public consumption, post links to pirated content on Facebook or sell unauthorized copies of copyrighted materials. And a slight majority—53%— believe that search engines should "be required to block links to pirated music and videos online." (1/22a)
