Music Industry Fails to Promote Legal Alternatives to Infringement

Music Industry Fails to Promote Legal Alternatives to Infringement

According to a leading consumer group, the music industry fails to promote any legal alternatives to piracy. According to the research of the same group, 90% of consumers, who know music services, have heard of only 2 well-known brands – Amazon and iTunes.


The Government-backed watchdog Consumer Focus considers the increase of legal online music market to be the best way to fight online copyright infringement, but it also states that the music industry is still failing to promote many legal alternatives to infrigement.

Consumer Focus has surveyed nearly two thousand adults and found out that 40% of them cannot name any single online music service, despite the fact that there are more than 20 services on the market. The consumer body has called for a music scheme named ‘all you can eat’ which allows internet users enjoy unlimited and legal downloads of music for a small additional monthly fee.

International Director of Consumer Focus, Jill Johnstone, says that the music industry is just shooting itself in the foot when not promoting legal online music services. That looks like a reasonable statement – if illegal file sharing causes so much damage to the music industry, then why aren’t they making more effort in promoting the legal alternatives? Before going down the enforcement road it would be only fair to invite the music industry to do something more in order to make people know the legal options.

The trade body representing the recording industry, IFPI, declares than 95% of downloaded music was not paid for last year. The Government’s Digital Economy Bill, though it’s not yet a law, has measures to disconnect infringers after a process of warnings.
Consumer Focus is also calling for reform of copyright licensing system of the United Kingdom in order to make it easier to offer copyrighted works to users legally for online music services. They believe the reform would encourage the increase of more legal alternatives such as ‘all you can eat’, streaming, advertisement, micropayment or subscription based models.

The music industry denies the fact of low awareness of legal music services. The CEO of the record industry trade body, the BPI, said that it was “not credible” to assume that downloading illegally users had never heard of Amazon, iTunes or other legal music services.

xxVOIDxSURFERxx avatarThis is all so very true. They don't do enough to promote the sites. But we all know that if you want to make sure your favorite band is getting a chunk of the money you pay for their music you have to go to the concerts...other then that the record lable is getting most of the pie.

No avataramazon is fantastic for music and i only discovered it when it was doing rage against the machine for 29p a track, i always get my legal downloads from there now but i ve never seen a huge amount of publicity for any major music download service. on tv radio or even online there isn t a great deal of advertising

menahunie avatarThe RIAA doesn't want people to know about online sales venues is because they will lose more control and more money from their pockets....
The last time I bought any CD's was around ten years ago; 125.00 to get the songs I only wanted. I had to spend allot of money for extra crap songs I didn't want; now I just download from iTUNES and other places for way cheaper.
