    Abstract

    With the introduction of new, faster and more convenient technology in recent years, file-sharing has become a much talked about issue causing reported wide-spread implications for the recorded music industry. Since the first popular file-sharing software Napster was made available, the popularity of such activities has grown, bringing lawsuits and copyright implications with it.

    Through primary and secondary research, the main findings of this study are that file-sharing does not have a significant negative impact on the sales of music, and in fact can help promote artists leading to greater success.
