PLEASE HELP - UNIVERSITY DISSERTATION!

Hi all, I am currently writing my University disseratation on the effect of globalisation on the music industry - and more specifically the effect the internet is having on the business practices of the major labels. It would be great if anyone at all could take 5 mins (maximum I promise!) to fill out this little questionnaire on your buying/downloading habits. It is totally confidential, I'm not looking to find out who illegally downloads the most, it is purely for numbers and I'll quote the best responses to the longer questions as well. MANY MANY THANKS TO ANYONE WHO TAKES 5 TO FILL THIS OUT FOR ME............

Also if anyone involved within the music industry from CEO's of labels to guitar tech's had a few spare minutes to do a quick interview via MSN messenger or via email on their thoughts about the industry today and its future, i would be very grateful.

This is simply for COLLEGE work, and just need to get a few filled out ASAP.

ANY HELP APPRECIATED. You can either post back here or copy the questionnaire and email it back to me at [email protected]. Comments and criticisms welcome!

Thanks, Ben
