Illegal downloading decreasing?

Posted on Sunday, May 27 2007 @ 01:10:37 CEST by

A new survey indicates U.S. teenagers are downloading a lot less illegal songs, software and other copyrighted material than three years ago:
The Business Software Alliance said its survey showed the percentage of young people between the ages of eight and 18 who acknowledged illegal downloads of software, music, movies or games fell from 60 percent in 2004 to 36 percent in 2007. In 2006 the figure was 43 percent.

The survey found the reasons for not making illegal copies was fear of accidentally downloading a computer virus (62 percent), getting into legal trouble (52 percent) and downloading spyware (51 percent).

Fear of getting in trouble with parents ranked fourth (cited by 48 percent), increasing from 40 percent in 2006.

The survey found 66 percent of young people said their parents set rules on what they could do on the Internet.
