A new study shows that many adults who download files do so on their company networks. These workers are consuming company resources and putting their employers at risk for lawsuits and copyright infringement. Just like they went after teens that downloaded music at home, the recording and motion picture industries are looking into including companies who employees illegaly download materials in their massive lawsuit campaign against file-sharers. Both sides agree that education is the most effective way to stop file sharing of copyrighted materials and that companies must create and enforce usage policies.
