    Dear Readers,

    I am doing a research paper and I thought that if I conducted my own Poll it would add some Support. (Research Paper is on Illegal FileSharing(Music in particular), concentrating on why it should be legalized)

    So I will be conducting a Poll to see how the results turn out to be... And for those that vote I would appreciate it if you could give an explanation of your answer (Might quote you).

    Well happy Voting and thank you for your support.

    Isn't coming to a filesharing forum to ask this question a bit like going to a vegan forum to ask who likes bacon?

    What is illegal filesharing???

    Sharing copyrighted material without permission from the copyright holder is illegal.

    But otherwise sharing files is totally legal. I say get rid of the copyright and problem solved. Let the artist get paid for writing the song/movie (once), performing said song/movie (live) and merchandise themselves into oblivion. I'd buy the t shirt!

    Damned if im gonna pay the type of money they want, without knowing im going to enjoy the experiance.

    I think it should be legalised because the artists get paid enough.

    if it was legalised, the artists would get very little.

    i believe prices are still way way too inflated, because up until 6 or 7 years ago people could name their prices. DVDs, CDs and games were never priced on the effort put in, the ammount of people contributed or anything like that. it was all done on a balance of what the most efficiant exclusion zone for prices (meaning the stingiest people who would pay for it) and net profit. meaning, they got the most they possibly could for products.
