Abstract:
There is currently an overwhelming amount of “sharing” going on with subscriptions with the newer generations, which is hurting entertainment industries because they make less money. The purpose of this study is to determine why or if people believe they are actually doing something unethical in the process of sharing subscription and if there is any difference in thinking when considering traditional piracy. In order to do this, participants willingly took a survey. It was discovered the people would be more willing to use other people’s digital content and would be more willing to do so if this content was in the form of a subscription rather than traditional pirated copies from a friend.
