Impact of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act on Piracy

by Carr, Nicholas George

Abstract (Summary)
This study details a web based survey of students in the School of Information and Library Science at UNC Chapel Hill. The survey was conducted to determine whether or not the participants’ knowledge of the terms in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act has an impact on their conformance to the act. The responses on the survey were analyzed statistically to search for any correlation between any of the variables. Additionally, a review of the prose responses given by the participants reveals trends in their conformity to the act, regardless of their knowledge of it.
