Why share on peer-to-peer? Public

Mp3 music files have been available for free download on peer-to-peer networks for many years. Recently, the Recording Industry Association of America has started tracking down individuals who share large amounts of files on these networks. The study consisted of an Internet survey of 46 WPI students. It was found that individuals see little reason to share these music files and that the added threat of a lawsuit has stopped many of these individuals from sharing their music files.

  • This report represents the work of one or more WPI undergraduate students submitted to the faculty as evidence of completion of a degree requirement. WPI routinely publishes these reports on its website without editorial or peer review.
