A new study from North Eastern University is getting some attention and it’s interesting how some people are spinning the numbers, so we decided to take a look.
“For Megaupload (MU) the researchers found that 31% of all uploads were infringing, while 4.3% of uploads were clearly legitimate. This means that with an estimated 250 million uploads, 10.75 million uploads were non-infringing. For the remaining 65% the copyrighted status was either unknown, or the raters couldn’t reach consensus.” – Torrent Freak
Simple Math : 31% + 65% = 96%
