Thread: Legal Music Downloads At 35%, Soon To Pass Piracy

  1. #1
    [news=http://images.slashdot.org/topics/topicinternet.gif]Entertainment Media Research released a study stating that 35% of music listeners are using legal download services, and that the percentage will soon surpass illegal downloads, currently at 40%. Slashdot has also previously reported on services like iTunes gaining in popularity over P2P services. "The findings indicate that the music industry is approaching a strategic milestone with the population of legal downloaders close to exceeding that of pirates," said Entertainment Media Research chief executive Russell Hart.

    Add them to the "shithead" group too. I think whats happened here is that they have used some sort of poll, and based their numbers on that

    not a chance.
    I haven't met or talked to even one person who's payed for music downloads before.
    I find it extremely hard to beleive that 35% of all music downloads are legit.
