Canadian Copyright Group Belied P2P Study Results

After the study sponsored by Industry Canada revealed that peer-to-peer file-sharing rather increases content purchasing than decreases it, the CRIA (Canadian Record Industry Association) hurried up to conduct the study with exactly the opposite results, claiming that peer-to-peer decreases music sales.

3 years ago, Industry Canada, a ministry of the country’s federal government, published the results of some independent study on the impact unauthorized downloading has on the industry. The study was conducted by Birgitte Andersen and Marion Frenz of the Department of Management at the University of London in England, and the results were startling: file-sharing positively affected music sales.

Although the researchers’ review of earlier econometric studies showed that file-sharing usually decreased content purchasing, they found that the opposite is true. Apparently, the study angered the CRIA and made it trying to discredit the results of that study. However, the attempts have been unsuccessful until now.

Today the results of another survey are published by the country’s Intellectual Property Council, called “The True Price of P2P File-Sharing”. This time, Director for the Centre for Law and Economics at the Australian National University investigated the information collected by Industry Canada three years ago and made a different conclusion. He pointed out that without access to P2P networks, the downloaders who don’t purchase any legal content at all would go legal and pay for 1/3 of the material they normally download. In other words, the copyright reform aimed at eliminating access to peer-to-peer services would not only boost legitimate sales, but would also support musicians. At the same time, government revenues are also supposed to be increased, because black market activities would return to mainstream commerce.

In other words, Canadian Record Industry Association is eager to point out that peer-to-peering in fact harms legitimate content sales, because if Internet users no longer had access to it, they would then buy content legally. However, they fail to mention how they are going to remove P2P access entirely. The matter is that its simplest form – email attachments – would be hard to target by any draconian legislative efforts.

foschnauzer avatarThis is interesting seeing how I took Canadian Civics. It is obvious that file sharing decreases sales of legal content, however it can be believable that more P2P would positively affect music sales because downloaders become aware of the content (whats worth purchasing, etc.) not only for music but for all content shared via P2P. Thanks for posting this SaM

sonofvictory avatarDoes anyone remember recording American Top 40 (Casey Casem) in the 80's on their tape recorders and then playing for their buddies? Sharing music that way was the only way I was ever going to buy a new album. CRIA needs to get with the times. There is no way to completely stop P2P. Viva La Revolucion!!
