Downloading, File Sharing, and Copyright

According to a recent Pew Internet Project study, 67 percent of Internet users who download music and 65 percent of users who share files say they don't care about copyright. Students and young adults are among the most likely to download music and share files; they're also the least likely to say they care about the copyright status of those files. The study also found that 65 percent of Internet users who share files online do not care whether the files they share are copyrighted or not. The number of downloaders who say they don't care about copyright has increased since 2000, when 61 percent said they didn't care about the copyright status. The full report is available online in PDF format; the free Adobe Acrobat Reader also is available online. Pew Internet & American Life Project, 202/296-0019 or http://www.pewinternet.org/.
