Abstract:     
This is a lengthy critique of the empirical findings, factual claims, and logic of the empirical examination of file-sharing by Felix Oberholzer-Gee and Koleman Strumpf. It is written for a general audience and provides details of calculations, data, and industry measurements that allow replication by the reader whenever possible. It provides much of the detail for the shorter, more academic version that is also posted.
