A study from the University of Hertfordshire claims that the average iPod has 842 illegally downloaded songs stored on its drive. The survey questioned 1,200 participants and found that 2/3 of young people download illegal music.

The average number of illegal songs downloaded per month is 53. The study also says that 42% of 14 to 24 year olds admit to uploading music onto sharing networks. British Music Rights commissioned the study.

"I was one of those people who went around the back of the bike shed with songs I had taped off the radio the night before. But this totally dwarfs that, and anything we expected," said Fergal Sharkey, former lead singer of the Undertones, and now chief executive of British Music Rights (BMR).
