Hey all,

The Cybernorms research group and the Lund University Internet Institute (LUii) is currently doing a survey on file-sharing in collaboration with The Pirate Bay, the bitTorrent site. The survey runs from 25 to 27 February.

The survey has been done twice before, and has been the largest of its kind with over 96,000 respondents. The first Research Bay survey was performed in April 2011, and it was followed by the Research Bay “re-loaded” about a year later in 2012. The Cybernorms research group also released the data from the first survey in a searchable database on this site, called the Survey Bay. Forbes reported, along with TechDirt and others.
