Preparation of the first phase interviews – Peer-to-peer file sharing software is too complicated for me to use. These statements would be grouped into clusters of those that exemplified the same access barrier (for example, cost, DRM, vendor lock-in, strength of enforcement) and one question formulated from each cluster for inclusion in the final quantitative survey, in a form that would be both simple and general enough for most consumers to answer. 5 Preparation of the first phase interviews The first phase survey form was quite comprehensive, consisting of 12 multi-part interview questions, which were designed to lay the groundwork for the second phase of the survey which would quantify the extent and scale of the access barriers that were identified in the first phase.

S ECOND PHASE : GLOBAL QUESTIONNAIRE of wide dissemination within countries of all levels of economic development. 1 Survey development The first phase of the survey had provided CI with an overview of the access barriers that face consumers around the world, thus enabling us to develop a more concise and focussed questionnaire for the second phase. One of ways in which the questioning became more focussed was that we decided not to maintain separate lines of questions about the three classes of material: educational materials, software, and films and music.

Consumers in all countries were more likely to buy original copyright works than to have recourse to pirated copies, provided that conditions are met. In most countries, the affordability and the quality of the original copy were of about equal importance. But interestingly there were more countries (twelve) for which quality was a+ more important criterion then the number of countries (eight) for which cost was more decisive.
