EU Study Confirmed Piracy Never Hurt Music Sales

EU Study Confirmed Piracy Never Hurt Music Sales

Unauthorized music downloads have very insignificant impact on online music sales. This is the conclusion of a new study carried out by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre.

The resolution of the study says that the vast majority of music consumed against the law wouldn’t have been legally purchased if unauthorized downloading services didn’t exist.
The Joint Research Centre has investigated the browsing habits of 16,000 European citizens and found out that not only does Internet piracy not hurt digital music sales – it may even have a positive effect on legal music consumption, because “pirates” are purchasing more music on the Internet than others.

The researchers compared people’s visits to illegal downloading services and legal music portals by following their clickstreams. It turned out that a 10% increase in clicks on unauthorized downloading portals resulted in a 0.2% increase in clicks on legitimate sites, regardless of interest in music. In a causal interpretation, this means that clicks on legal music portals would have been 2% if unauthorized downloading sites didn’t exist. Moreover, the effect of legitimate streaming services like Spotify on visits to music purchase sites is even greater – the Joint Research Centre estimated it at 7%.

Although the study in question didn’t include any policy recommendations, the researchers still came to conclusion that the music industry should not be overly concerned about Internet piracy. In the meantime, one should take into account that this research didn’t examine the impact of unauthorized downloads on physical music sales like CDs.

hubsabubs avatarTry before you buy right? I mean seriously, do you know how much money I have saved myself trying games before I buy them. If I find the game worthy of purchase I'll go out and buy it and support the developers. However if I find the game is garbage and not worth my time, I won't spend the 60$ on it. Then I can't get pissed when I take it back to find I get a 10$ trade in credit for it. Alot of people do the same thing and all this study shows is that principle.

nobs68 avatarThrough visiting sites such as this, my daughter who is in her early 20s and myself have been introduced to new artists which in turn has given us an even wider range in musical taste. Then there is the going to gigs of the aforementioned artists, hence putting more money into their pockets. but its the record companies not keeping up with the digital age as Eminem proved a few year back, if you can remember, but if you can`t its here http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20100903/15093610898.shtml

No avatarillegal downloading has already killed the music industry many years ago. the music industry also had a hand in this. they refused to adapt to the changing times when they should have. i have not paid for any music in many years. i cant be the only one. of course the study is slanted. you could do another study and come up with the exact opposite results. but reguardless this headline is a good thing.

The_Ritty avatarGarbage music hurt music sales - not piracy, cuz we were recording onto tapes years ago (when the boss, madonna, mj & prince RULED the scene)...and i believe they made and sold millions...

make good music, people will buy it. Make crap and you get what you get...

trialNerror avatarThis is not news, but it is information that needs to be posted again and again and again and again for another decade. If independent research quits the RIAA/MPAA will have nothing to prove thus effectively win their monopoly.
