Felten's unified theory of filesharing

Felten's unified theory of filesharing

[Ad box removed; this image serves to flag pages that need to be updated in my log file.]

Edward Felten posts his Grand Unified Theory of filesharing, which attempts to explain the conflicting results we see from different studies on the effect of filesharing on music sales.  Go read the article, but he basically postulates that there are two different populations of file sharers, and depending on your study techniques, you preferentially measure one or the other or both of them and so reach differing conclusions.  It makes a lot of sense.  Unfortunately, it doesn't really offer any solutions or instantly make easy-to-test predictions.  [Felten's unified theory of filesharing]
