    3 none of the above... Usenet (newsgroups)
    4 c
    5 d no, I'm a cheap SOB and I'd wait until such time as I could get whatever it was for free.
    6 b
    7 c and mainly because I can.
    8 n\a
    and that's as far as I got....

    It seems like you are trying to touch on two main topics. Do people realize that file sharing is stealing, and do they care or understand the effects.

    I believe there is a difference between the non-profit thefts of intellectual property and that of physical property. Would I steal a car out of a parking lot? No.
    Would I feel bad about making an exact copy of a car I saw in a parking lot, for myself? No.


    I strongly believe that it is the copyright holders' responsibility to protect their intellectual property by means of making it non-copyable, or crackable from the source. If they can not/do not do that I don't feel bad about downloading it at all.

    It is in my best interest that they do not. I will boo their efforts to do such. But, if it happens I'll give them a pat on the back for it.

    1. A
    2. A,B, and sometimes C
    3. A? (music is obtained mostly from bittorrent and everything else via newsgroups)
    4. B (I buy the CD's of bands I really like, but never at expensive retail prices. Usually in used cd stores or eBay)
    5. C
    6. B (where is the "hell no" option?)
    7. None of the answers apply. The main thing I download is television shows as I typically work until 9pm and miss most popular prime time television.
    8. Skipped
    9. & 10. (too complicated for simple answers)
