Legal "Three of the admins behind The Pirate Bay are all still guilty, a Swedish appeals court decided on Friday, but their jail time has been reduced. Fredrik Neij, Peter Sunde, and Carl Lundstrom's prison sentences have all been reduced from the original one year to between 4 and 10 months each, though the trade-off is an increase in damages that they must pay to the music and movie industries."

First, I'd like to see these studies and who actually did them. Secondly, the only the only thing I see copyright laws stifling is freeloaders from getting copious amounts of stuff completely gratis. If I think you have more money than me does that mean I should have the right to rob your home? Before I get the "that's different" thing... no, it's not. Theft of someone elses personal property is still theft of someone elses personal property, whether off the interweb or because I broke your bedroom window to take off with your jewel encrusted cock ring set.
