P2P Networks, Music, and Generational Cultural Experience
* Presentation (video): Beyond the Crisis in the Recording Industry: P2P Networks, Music, and Generational Cultural Experience
Paper presented by Hector Fouce within the context of the 4º Inclusiva-net Meeting: P2P Networks and Processes, celebrated in Madrid from July 6 to 10, 2009.
""The contemporary debate about the use of P2P networks for music exchange tends to focus on the legality or ilegality of these practices, or in their relationship with the crisis in the recording industry. However, very few works have reflected on how P2P networks have changed the cultural experience of music. In this work, based on the research "Emerging practices and new technologies: the case of digital music in Spain" (Prácticas emergentes y nuevas tecnologías: el caso de la música digital en España), I refer to a small study that shows how three age groups (teenagers, university students, and young adults) use P2P networks, how they assess them and how they apply them to their daily experience."
