75% of the young voters in Sweden support filesharing, even if it’s illegal, according to a recent survey. This indicates that filesharing is going to be a hot topic in the coming elections.
Over 75 percent of those asked said it was OK to download illegally from the Internet, said the survey.
These figures indicate that the Swedish Pirate Party (piratpartiet), may collect a significant number of votes.
The survey was conducted a week before the Piratebay raid and the pro-piracy demonstration, and it’s likely that filesharing got even more popular after that.
