A majority of Americans believe copying music files and computer software is "stealing," and should be restricted. But few want to see sharing networks shut down or users prosecuted http://www.njit.edu/news/2003/2003-066.php http://www.njit.edu/news/2003/2003-066.phpThu, 19 Jun 2003 00:00:00 -0400 A nationwide survey by the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) finds that a majority of Americans agree that copying or sharing media is stealing, and that it should be restricted. Most Americans see little difference between making illegal copies of music files, photocopying books, or sharing copyrighted computer software. Still, just 36 percent of Americans believe it's a good idea for schools and Internet providers to shut down file-sharing networks, or want to see computer users held responsible if they download copyrighted material.
