More than half of U.S. Internet users say that downloading music is not stealing, according to survey results released Thursday by the Pew Internet & American Life Project.
In the study, 53% of the users said that downloading music off the Net without paying for it, is not a theft. Only 31% considered it as a theft.

Also, accorind to the study, over 22% of all Internet users in States, have downloaded music from the Net.

Maybe this study gives something to think about for RIAA and other major music publishing organizations and their members.
