Study: Napster users don't think they're 'stealing'
Author: JT Smith
From a column at ZDNet: "The venerable Pew Internet and American Life Project released a report Thursday that confirms -- yet again -- what my own unempirical experiences have found: that few people who use Napster seem to think they're stealing, or feel any sort of guilt about violating copyright. In fact, 78 percent of the people surveyed say they have no ethical qualms about it." The Register's take on it: "Only uneducated Yanks respect copyright."
