Background and context

Significant debate surrounds the practice of file sharing, particularly with music and video files. At the heart of the debate is whether file sharing qualifies as fair use. Fair use is generally considered the acceptable use of copyrighted materials, typically for new "transformative" creative works (like in sampled/mashed-up songs or in documentaries etc). Some argue that file sharing should qualify as fair use because it can help promote artists and can lead to creative mashups of songs and videos.
