    Illegal downloading of songs, software and other copyrighted materials from the Internet among US youth has dropped sharply in the past three years, a survey showed Tuesday.

    The Business Software Alliance said its survey showed the percentage of young people between the ages of eight and 18 who acknowledged illegal downloads of software, music, movies or games fell from 60 percent in 2004 to 36 percent in 2007. In 2006 the figure was 43 percent.

    That's because in three years the young people grew up, are now old people downloading illegally.

    That's some flawed thinking... So no young people were born to replace the oldies? :lol:

    This is flawed. It assumes everyone tells the truth.

    There's no way this is true. I refuse to believe it.

    I stopped downloading massive amounts of music because it gets in the way of downloading massive amounts of software and videos
