A heavyweight Work Foundation report, just published: Staying ahead: the economic performance of the UK’s creative industries. Quote…

“…peer-to-peer software programs such as BitTorrent…”

Durh. BitTorrent is a protocol, not the name of a program.

Update: I’ve now read through it. It’s an interesting collage of a large number of previous reports and papers, but basically re-states what we already know, without fully admitting the extent of what we don’t know in terms of industry statistics. Nor does it fully dig into exactly what the state’s bean-counters count as ‘software and software services’ or ‘radio and television services’ when they create their shaky statistics on the ‘creative industries’.
