The largest database of file-sharing demographics ever!

The Survey Bay is a searchable database containing responses from 75.000 users from the global file-sharing mega-site The Pirate Bay, including demographics, information about their p2p habits and thoughts about the future of file-sharing.

The data is released in cooperation with Torrentfreak and free to search and use for all! Read it, use it, share it - and let us know the results! We are very eager to see what can be made with all this data.

File sharing = the largest library known to mankind. Enormous potential to raise the quality of life, especially though education. I wish more universities would adapt a progressive view towards sharing content.

I pay for culture as long as I can afford it. I am a student with a limited budget, but my need for movies and music is larger than I can afford. If I really like a movie or a album, I buy it, but never before seeing it or listening to it first. I go to the cinema about once each month but sometimes you want to see a movie...

Filesharing is illegal in my country. I think the attitude against filesharing will shift once content providers have figured out how to turn filesharing into a commodity, in an effective way.
