Abstract [en]

Research shows that almost 30 per cent men and 20 per cent women at the age of 16-24 in Sweden download music on a regular basis instead of buying records. Thanks to modern technologies teenagers of today have become used to downloading music illegally from theInternet. Even though legal alternatives, such as Spotify, have become popular, the behavior of illegal download of music still persists. What do record companies do to prevent this phenomenon and why do they go to such length to stop this widespread movement? The question is, why is illegal download of music a problem – and for whom? To investigate this I’ve read books about the subject, analyzed web pages of alternative record companies and interviewed a drummer in a local band. As a conclusion I discuss the pros and cons of free download of music in Sweden.
