(Classic Rock) A public survey sponsored by Google suggests that peer-to-peer filesharers spend 30% more money on legal music purchases than those who don't join peer-to-peer networks.

And while 80% of the public think it's acceptable to share copyrighted material with family, and 60% believe the same about passing it onto friends, around 85% say it's unacceptable to upload content for general consumption.
