Study: eBook Pirates Are Relatively Old and Wealthy

Obviously it is the younger generation that pirates music and movies but that doesn't mean us older folks aren't above downloading copyrighted content without paying for it.

A new study has found that people who illegally download eBooks are older and wealthier than most people's perception of the average pirate. Commissioned by anti-piracy company Digimarc, the study suggests that people aged between 30 and 44 years old with a household income of between $60k and $99k are most likely to grab a book without paying for it.
