Abstract

Between March 15 and April 15 of this year, 2,755 musicians and songwriters responded to a Web-based survey about the way they use the Internet and their views on a host of public policy questions related to copyright and music file-sharing on the Internet. The sample for this survey is not representative or projectable to the entire population of musicians and songwriters. However, it brings many more voices into the debates about copyright laws, the impact of online music swapping, and the long-term prospects for the music industry.

Main Results of the Study

  • Musicians are sharply divided about the impact of file sharing on the music business
  • 67% say artists should have complete control over material they copyright and they say copyright laws do a good job of protecting artists
  • 83% have provided free samples of their work online and significant numbers say free downloading has helped them sell CDs and increase the crowds at concerts
  • Many musicians and songwriters do not think the Recording Industry Association of America's campaign against free file sharing on the Internet will benefit them
