Study: Students Don’t Think Music Piracy Is Stealing - Entertainment & Stars

Study: Students Don’t Think Music Piracy Is Stealing - Entertainment & Stars | music innovation | Scoop.it
To people in the justice system and in the music industry; stealing is stealing. To college students; pirating music is different from shoplifting and is less serious, according to a recent study.
The study, done by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, found that while they considered shoplifting illegal and immoral, they did not feel that way about downloading music illegally. This, the researchers say, underscores the problems law enforcement agencies have had in trying to convince people to avoid this kind of theft.

A recent study from University of Nebraska-Lincoln says college students don't feel the same way about downloading music illegally on the web as they did about shoplifting.

Two hundred undergraduates were asked to react to a fellow student either shoplifting a CD or illegally downloading one. Overall, students expressed various reasons, such as morality, influence from family and friends, fear of getting caught, as to why they would follow the law and not steal the physical CD. Whereas with the downloading music, fewer students expressed the same kinds of emotions.

The majority of the reports on piracy have one thing in common – they are funded by the entertainment industries to provide ammunition for political lobbying efforts. The downside of these reports, aside from the biased outcome, is that they tend to focus on just one area – the alleged losses for the industry caused by piracy.

Instead of focusing on the consequences, however, it might be much more constructive to also look at the causes of piracy. After all, the solution to a problem can often be found by looking at its origins.
