Question Why do we use file sharing??

Hi guys!!

Im writing a dissertation on music file sharing.

I would like to know why you use this facility??...... what is stopping you from buying the music from the shops??

how much do you roughly download per month??

do u know the legal issues behind file sharing? and if so do you care??

do you think your downloads are affecting the music industries profits??

what are the main networks you use to do this?

if you have any other points you think will help me please feel to state those as well.

I will be very grateful if you can help me with this.

p.s this is just for my uni work and the information will not be used for any other purposes.

also if you could leave your age/sex that would help me collate some figures for my research.

cheers Miss xxx

Many titles are not available through pay for downloads especially older items.

File sharing can encompass much more than mp3 files too.

The legal issues are not clearly defined and very from country to country and virtually impossible to prove.
