The File-Sharing Database
Nuclear Elephant writes "The File Sharing Database is an online record of things users wouldn't have bought if they hadn't downloaded it (or part of it) first, and therefore tracks sales as a direct result of file sharing. The RIAA and MPAA claim that file sharing hurts sales, but some recent figures show that file sharing works FOR the industry. In the first 18 hours of operation, the database has logged nearly a quarter of a million dollars in revenue generated from file sharing. The complete catalog is now available for review/reporting. If you've ever bought something you downloaded, roll on over and add it to the database."
