I'm doing a research project at my university. The topic is how torrents are used to circumvent copyright legislation. In other words, how they are used to circuit around copyright rules about illegal downloads and that sort of thing.
I'm looking for ethical opinions on this. How do you feel about this? Do you agree that torrents circumvent copyright, or do you feel they don't, and how do you FEEL this effects the music, film and game industries?
I want this to be more of a discussion group - I want to know how you feel this ethically effects the different industries (music, game, film etc.). I don't want legal facts and figures.
Thank you very much for your input.
