THE EFFECT OF PEER-TO-PEER FILE SHARING ON INDEPENDENT RECORD LABELS
A total of 883 label owners and managers were contacted. Ninety-seven responded. The data was evaluated qualitatively and quantitatively. The survey results indicate that approximately two-thirds of the respondents favored file sharing and reported that it either benefited or at least did not harm their businesses. However, a consistent proportion of the respondents either opposed file sharing or had no opinion of it at all. Finally, most of those respondents who included comments with the survey expressed opposition to file sharing.
