The music and film industries have suffered at the hands of piracy and much has been done in recent years to kerb this behaviour. A survey carried out by the EU has revealed some contradictory opinions with 96% of people agreeing that the intellectual property of creators should be protected, but then 42% feel it is ok to illegally download films and music. Hmmmm.

Also, a little less surprisingly, this figure rises to 57% amongst those surveyed aged between 15 and 24 years, making illegal downloading content a common and acceptable trend of music consumption amongst the younger generation. Read more about the results from the survey via the link below...
