Artistas, Musicos e a Internet

Uma pesquisa nos Estados Unidos mostra como os artistas de uma forma geral usam a internet para criar e promover o seu trabalho. Também apresenta questões relacionadas com os direitos de autor e livre distribuição.

Artists, Musicians and the Internet

They have embraced the internet as a tool
that helps them create, promote, and sell
their work. However, they are divided about
the impact and importance of free filesharing
and other copyright issues

Unique surveys assess how artists and musicians use the internet, what
they think about copyright issues, and how they feel about online filesharing.

A national survey of self-described artists and an online survey of 2,755 musicians find:
Artists and musicians on all points of the spectrum from superstars to starving singers have embraced the internet as a tool to improve how they make, market, and sell their creative works. They use the internet to gain inspiration, build community with fans and fellow artists, and pursue new commercial activity.
Artists and musicians believe that unauthorized peer-to-peer file-sharing of
copyrighted works should be illegal. However, the vast majority do not see online filesharing as a big threat to creative industries. Across the board, artists and musicians are more likely to say that the internet has made it possible for them to make more money from their art than they are to say it has made it harder to protect their work from piracy or unlawful use.
