A report from the London School of Ecionomics argues that creative industries have not been harmed by file sharing. "The creative industries are innovating to adapt to a changing digital culture," write the authors, "and evidence does not support claims about overall revenue reduction due to individual copyright infringement." Indeed, "The experiences of other countries that have implemented punitive measures against individual online copyright infringers indicate that the approach does not have the impacts claimed by some in the creative industries."
