Abstract

A thorough online survey on music downloading behaviours was used in this research, which included learners studying online at a small-regional public institution. Aimed at different business courses, the poll investigated industry pricing, views towards downloading music legally and illegally, demographics, and litigation threats. While not fully generalisable, the results indicate that music piracy is widespread across U.S. campuses. The study also delves into forecasting methods used by E-Commerce firms, revealing a preference for non-quantitative techniques and assessing the accuracy of sales forecasts. Legal implications surrounding music piracy and the liability of servers or software distributors are also discussed, highlighting ongoing legal debates and industry responses.

Conclusion

The study offers valuable insights into the behaviour and attitudes of university students towards music downloading, underscoring the widespread nature of music piracy. It also sheds light on the forecasting practices of E-Commerce firms, emphasising the need for more structured and quantitative methods. The legal challenges and responses from the music industry highlight the ongoing complexities in addressing music piracy. Overall, the research underscores the importance of nuanced approaches in understanding digital media consumption, forecasting practices, and the legal landscape of digital content.
