Sharing files, folders and File and Folder Permissions Using DropBox

Is it possible to set permissions on a folder in DropBox?

Is this a case of setting up each member of the team with their own individual DropBox account and then sharing specific folders and / or files with them a bit like how sharing Google Docs works?

Am I right in saying the sharing method achieves the same thing as setting permissions on files and folders?

    I think it's a case of sharing specific files and folders, DropBox doesn't use a permissions model. Right?
