Posted: 25th Jul, 2008 By: MarkJ
Independent UK research conducted by Canvasse Opinion from Experian on behalf of moneysupermarket has revealed that one in five (17%) people admit to downloading from the Internet illegally. The survey received a total of 1001 responses from parents of children aged 3-15:

  • Almost half (46 per cent) of parents do not monitor what websites their children access every time they go online.

  • One in eight (12 per cent) people are unaware of the legality of their downloads.

  • Only two in 10 (21 per cent) parents use parental control software on their home computer.

  • Over two thirds (67 per cent) of downloaders do not pay for the files.

  • Almost half (45 per cent) confess to buying illegal/copied discs.

The study follows yesterdays signing of a major new anti-piracy initiative between the creative industry and UK ISPs (here).
