The MPAA has used the study to pressure colleges to take tougher steps to prevent illegal file-sharing and to back legislation currently before the House of Representatives that would force them to do so.
But now the MPAA, which represents the U.S. motion picture industry, has told education groups a "human error" in that survey caused it to get the number wrong. It now blames college students for about 15 percent of revenue loss.
We would agree that's still a decent number. But it happens to be 3x less than the original number. Of course, you don't suppose the RIAA and MPAA share study firms, do they?
