College Students Say They Would Pay for Napster

from the but-would-they-really dept

A study has found that 73% of college students have used Napster in the past month. Also, of those who use it, nearly 60% say they would pay a $15/month subscription fee to keep using it. Apparently (and not surprisingly) students are more likely to pay this fee if they’re heavy users of Napster. I wonder, though, if this is just what they say, and their actions would be quite different in reality. It will be interesting to see what happens when some student is paying $15 a month for Napster with Metallica watching over him carefully, and he sees his roommate using Gnutella for free.
