Online piracy survey for my dissertation

Calling everyone!! I have written a very brief survey for my dissertation and would really appreciate any responses from anyone (students and lecturers) as I am aiming for at least 200 responses.

It is a survey about people's consumption of pirated content online.

It only takes 60 seconds to complete (no exaggeration) and I really value all responses.

Thank you!

Sleeping Habits

Hi, I'm asking for some help for one of my assessed features.

If you do, please could you let me know asap.

Charities to suffer with the death of print media?

After spending two weeks work experience at the KM group in Canterbury I realised the sheer importance of local newspapers promoting local charity events and fundraisers.

For example, during the second week I spoke to ex-Falklands paratrooper, Colin Rees, 48, of Whitstable, Kent.

The youth of today, the consumers of tomorrow.

As the old mediums of journalism falter and ‘citizen’, un-professional, social networking journalism grows should we not try something different? Is it not time for media companies to try a new approach to counter the decrease in sales of print journalism. The Independent company launched the I paper in late 2010 to try to increase its readership and increase its revenue.
