|Title:||Movie File Sharing Amongst Young New Zealanders|
|Objective:||To assess young New Zealanders' behaviour and attitudes concerning illegal movie file sharing.|
|Sample:||500+ respondents aged between 15 and 30 years|
Two in five young New Zealanders have downloaded illegal copies of movies for free. 65% do not feel guilt about the artists not receiving any payment for their work. However, fewer respondents believe that illegal downloading using file-sharing programs is acceptable (47% vs. 60% in 2008). Also, the awareness of movie piracy arrests or charges has significantly increased (45% vs. 35% in 2008).
71% of respondents would take notice and stop illegal downloading if being warned by their ISP. 62% would probably stop illegal downloading if their Internet connection could be suspended or terminated.
