This paper studies attitudes towards mobile peer-to-peer content sharing services. It presents results from a survey conducted among potential mobile peer-to-peer (P2P) content sharing services users in Finland. The paper does not try to assess technical feasibility of deployment of P2P services in mobile networks. It answers elementary questions about the willingness of mobile phone users to share content stored in their mobile phones as well as their interest in downloading content created by the content industry and other mobile phone users. Thus, it examines feasibility of providing such services. The paper also presents respondents' opinions concerning mobile P2P content sharing services. It also elaborates on example mobile content services that have chances to achieve end-user acceptance.
