Submission + - DRM content drives availability on P2P networks (arstechnica.com)

jgreco writes: The music industry once feared that going DRM-free would drive a massive explosion of copyright-infringing music availability on P2P networks. Now, this study seems to suggest otherwise. The answer is obvious: if you can easily get inexpensive DRM-free content that works on your devices through legitimate channels, most people won't bother with the headache of P2P networks. It appears that users largely turn to P2P to acquire DRM-free versions of content that is distributed with DRM. The MPAA, of course, will not come away from this with the obvious conclusion.
