Artists say they aren't threatened by file sharing

According to a new Pew Internet and American Life Project study, most
musicians and artists say the Internet has helped them make more money
from their work despite online file-trading services that allow users to
copy songs and other material for free. Two-thirds of those surveyed
said file sharing posed little threat to them, and less than one-third
of those surveyed said file sharing was a major threat to creative
industries. Coverage at http://news.com.com/2100-1027_3-5478329.html
