Default Illegal music downloading

Hey guys

Well I haven't been around here even remotely as much as I'd like to be... hope everyone is well! The reason I have been MIA is mainly due to a ridiculous amount of uni work for my final year. My main piece of work is a dissertation on illegal music downloading, and as I'm scouring the net for articles I figured there might well some people on banter with some opinions, figures, sources, or ideas that I haven't thought of.

There's a lot more going on in the US than here in Scotland so anything you guys know is appreciated.

The broad view of the work is on the legal side. Mainly:

1. are the laws against downloading too difficult to enforce since the growth of downloading;

2. Is treatment of downloaders unfair?;

3. and Comparing the response to illegal downloading in the US and UK

If there's anything you think is worth mentioning or any good sites/contacts I might find useful, it would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Sorry for posting this in the lounge too, but I know it gets checked more than any other forum.

Anything regarding the legality of downloading is probably best to contact the RIAA directly, and maybe if you can get in touch with the representatives of P2P sites and get a view from them, that might be able to tell you how downloading is changing, and how the users of these sites have been affected.

Thanks Franscar, that website was a wee gem.

Already tried looking for a contact no/email for RIAA.. there's nothing on the page. Kinda ironic huh? They're allowed all our details, we're not even treated to an email address to contact.
