The International Music Software Trade Association (IMSTA) is inviting music software users from all over the world to participate in the ‘Let’s Talk Piracy’ survey.
The survey is described as an opportunity to communicate directly with music software industry executives as the results of the survey will be distributed to all IMSTA member companies.
IMSTA does not partake in lawsuits and says that it will not share names and e-mail addresses with the music software companies.
The survey is conducted to obtain a better understanding of the end-user’s attitudes towards piracy and to follow any trends that occur from year to year. Consequently, IMSTA is asking all participants to be “completely honest in their responses as they will not be used against them in any way shape or form”.
The top 100 useful comments will be selected and their contributors entered into a contest. The final ten respondents emerging from that process will receive software prizes from IMSTA member companies.
To take the survey – which closes on 31 December – visit www.imsta.org.
