At 0900 o’clock Saturday morning local time we closed the survey that we have had promoted on The Pirate Bay, called The Research Bay. After 72 hours we’ve got almost 100 000 answers – covering people of all ages from all over the world! This gives the research community a great pool of data and info to dig into and try to find the core issues of the file-sharing community.
The outcome of this survey will now be compared with the one we did last year. We also compare our data to other surveys and studies that we have done along with other international studies of similar phenomena. This will make it possible to get some kind of understanding of in what direction the file-sharing community is evolving.
We would like to thank all of you who have helped us by filling out the survey. It really means a lot!
Oh, by the way: To make sure that this is not a one way relation, we are preparing a surprise for you all. We hope to be able to present it in just a little more than a week. Keep your eyes open here, and on The Pirate Bay.
