I drafted a survey - entirely private initiative! - because I feel that downloaders are grossly misrepresented by the media (and congress for that matter). It is currently open to downloading. So far it has only 10 questions. It's not conclusive and you're free to change it (somewhat) and to add your own questions. Then, you can send it to your favorite artist, the record company, media, a poll-company or congress. That should get their attention!
