NZ: One warning will stop young illegally downloading

October 20, 2009

More than 70 per cent of New Zealand youth would stop accessing illegal versions of copyrighted material if they received a notice from their ISP, a survey has found. Research firm Synovate found that a notice from their ISP would be enough to stop 71 per cent of young people further accessing illegal copies of movies.

The survey also found two in five young people have downloaded illegal copies of movies for free. The majority (65 per cent) do not feel any guilt about the artists not receiving any payment for their works but a similar number (62 per cent) would also probably stop if their Internet connection could be terminated, the survey found.
