For my research, I conducted interviews with a variety of creators in late 2014 about their attitudes to copyright and digital distribution. (The quoted material in this article is taken from those interviews.)What I found was that while creators have been prepared to engage with various new models of distribution, such as Spotify and Flickr, they still encounter widespread unauthorised digital copying of their material.
