Segnalo un articolo che spero possa risultare di interesse.
Si tratta di un'analisi sulla percezione che gli utenti comuni della
rete hanno del tema "diritto d'autore". Se chi fa le leggi
considerasse questi aspetti forse farebbe anche delle norme pił vicine
alla realtą contemporanea.

habits and beliefs of internet users

ABSTRACT: This article presents an analysis based on data from an open
dataset made available by an independent empirical research on the
topic of "Copyright in the digital age". The original data includes
information about attitudes, social perceptions and levels of
After describing the initial objectives of the research and presenting
the set of variables considered, an in-depth analysis is here
discussed, focusing on the similarities and differences encountered in
distinct categories of respondents.
The main objective of this analysis is to test the soundness and the
descriptive power of the classification proposed in the original
study, which divided respondents into the four categories of
"Generic", "Active", "Creative" and "Professional creative" users.
Other possible clusters are identified here, and their possible
associations with those groups is discussed.
Results indicate that the views of authors of digital content about
the practice of illegal download tend to differ from those of non
producers. Non publishers of digital content seem to be almost equally
distributed between those who are against download, and those who
tolerate it.

Grazie. Un cordiale saluto.
