Hey guys...First, do you think my title is suitable for my EE 'How has illegal file sharing affected young adults and what actions have been taken in attempt to prevent this activity?'

And also, I need some help here...can you guys post your opnions on how illegal file sharing such as BitTorrent have affected you? for example, watch less movies at the cinema?

Thanks

Not sure many people will answer your last question since it would be admitting to breaking the law.

The title will be REALLY hard to colect research for.

Yes thats the problem...I have to rely mostly on primary sources such as questionnaires. If I focus more on Music/ Media industry, would it be more of an economical issue rather than ITGS?

Hmm...so should i edit the last question a bit? Like ask how effective instead of what they have done?

to answer your question:
yes i download music from the internet and i dont think i will ever go and buy a cd in the store caauz whats the point of getting if you can download it for free on the net! i dont download movies that much cauz they are too big and my connection is too slow so i go to the cinema ;D
and about the illegal issue that someone mentioned here: i dont care, they will never catch me cauz i am just one in a million and i take appropriate measures to make sure that they will never catch me (like using proxys etc) so i dont ****ing care what those idiots tell me to do

dynaaamite ur like begging someone to find u. i think if a random FBI dude was surfing this right now he would definitly pour millions of US tax money into finding you and prosecuting u. to help him:

bomb bomb bomb bomb

there we go now if they serach for bomb online they'l find this place and ul be buuuurrrrnnnneeeeddd

in answer to your question i think that affected young adults is a bit stupid. firstly put teenagers cos thats what you mean :p: secondly erm no people would still go cinema to meet up etc. its not like i think now i dnt need to have friends i can download films at home. erm yeah i spose you coiuld argue that people buy more drugs because they dnt have to spend money on CDs or films. but that would be stupid :p: erm the stuff about what has been doen to combat it sounds good. i think something about public awareness would be more relevant 2bh. At what point am i breaking the law, what are my chances of being caught. etc you could incoporate primary reserach like that. im sure if u posted something in the music forum billions of people would respond. just set up a questionnnaire on one of those websites and good luck

Hey, again, thanks for replies...I am deciding to change my EE title to this

"The rise of illegal file sharing on the Internet has significantly
altered the concepts of ownership, in terms of intellectual property, for
modern teenagers."

What do you guys thing about it? It narrows up the original title and I can prove / disprove it (more like a hypothesis) which makes it easier to write about.

Comments please thanks

the following 3 things should always be in your title for a successful ITGS essay.

1. the IT system
2. the issue
3. the stakeholder

for your question "'How has illegal file sharing affected young adults and what actions have been taken in attempt to prevent this activity?"

You stated 1 (file sharing) and 3 (young adults) but the issue is not clearly presented.

1. the IT system
2. the issue
3. the stakeholder

here is your list of three u got to tick the boxes, 2bh i dont study ITGS so i dunno wats good and wats not, dont u have a supervisor at ur school to guide u through sorting a question. erm neway i think someone needs to clarfiy wat these words mean in the points u have to include cos erm i dunno wat they mean :p: then i could probs help more

there were some articles recently about companies using myspace to find out about people from email addresses etc. i spoe the system would be myspace the issue is ethics of using it and the stakeholder would be the guy trying for a job but erm 4k words on that maybe not.... lol sorry

you want info about myspace being used by firms? i think google would be the best place to look.

http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en...G=Search&meta=

is a 5 second search :p:

I think maybe you could branch out the topic something like myspace: good or bad, the ethics of myspace something like that.

then you could talk about an even wider range of topics such as paeidophilia. i believe someone from the times newspaper was asking questions on here about myspace a few weeks bag, u could search for that on here.

then you could branch out further still and consider (i cant rem the name of them) but like the whole area of hi5, myspace, xanga, there is a name for this group. lol enjoy :p:
