Yesterday I got an email from Universal Music asking me to complete an online survey at http://www.vice-versa.info/q/45 about music buying habits, in return for being entered in a prize draw. I can't remember exactly how they got my email address - I think it must have been ages ago when I signed up for one of their singer's email lists.
The funny thing about it is that they expect people to admit to filesharing !! It really made me laugh when I read the questions on the survey - does RIAA think we are stupid enough to admit to them that we do filesharing !! They can't even spell Morpheus or Gnutella properly in the question where they ask "Which sites do you mainly use?"
Then they have questions like "How much do you spend on music a month?" and then on the "Where do you buy music?" question they have an option for "I download it for free" !!
At first I was thinking of completing the survey saying I download all my music for free (just to annoy them) but then I thought I'd better not, or they might come round my house or use the results of the survey as another excuse to harrass filesharers. But the whole thing made me laugh anyway, and I hope it will you aswell.
