Illegal File Sharing In The UK Declines
· 1

Illegal file sharing in the UK has declined, most notably among teens, according to media and technology research firm The Leading Question.

The last national survey taken in December 2007, found 22 percent of teens regularly filed shared music tracks, but in January 2009 this was down to 17 percent, a comparative drop of nearly a quarter.

The biggest drop in those regularly file sharing occurred among 14-18 year olds. In 2007 42 percent of 14- 18 year olds were sharing files at least once a month. In January 2009 this was down to just 26 percent.
