Internet pirates buy 10 times more music than others

Piracy may be the bane of the music industry but according to a new study, it may also be its engine. A report from the BI Norwegian School of Management has found that those who download music illegally are also 10 times more likely to pay for songs than those who don?t.A-pro-Pirate-Bay-demonstr-001.jpgEverybody knows that music sales have continued to fall in recent years, and that filesharing is usually blamed. We are made to imagine legions of internet criminals, their fingers on track-pads, downloading songs via BitTorrent and never paying for anything. One of the only bits of good news amid this doom and gloom is the steady rise in digital music sales. Millions of internet do-gooders, their fingers on track-pads, who pay for songs they like ? purchasing them from Amazon or iTunes Music Store. And yet according to Professor Anne-Britt Gran?s new research, these two groups may be the same.


The Norwegian study looked at almost 2,000 online music users, all over the age of 15. Researchers found that those who downloaded ?free? music ? whether from lawful or seedy sources ? were also 10 times more likely to pay for music. This would make music pirates the industry?s largest audience for digital sales.

Wisely, the study did not rely on music pirates? honesty. Researchers asked music buyers to prove that they had proof of purchase.

The paper?s conclusions emerge just as Sweden?s Pirate Bay trial comes to a close. Pirate Bay?s four defendants, who helped operate the notorious BitTorrent tracker, were sentenced to a year in jail and fined 30m SEK (£2,500,000) in damages.

Buying a bands CD is the WORST way to support a band to begin with..a band gets a couple bucks at MOST from selling a cd...

Support your bands buy going to the shows and direct merch sales!!

I download tons of music over the years and thats how I support my bands! My t-shirt collections and other merch purchases...picture disk lp's, posters...ect....

I dont support record companies!

here is a little quote from an interview with Trent Reznor of NIN (nine inch nails)

As the climate
grows more and more desperate for record labels, their answer to their mostly self-inflicted wounds seems to be to screw the consumer over even more. A couple of examples that quickly come to mind:

* The ABSURD retail pricing of Year Zero in Australia. Shame on you, UMG. Year Zero is selling for $34.99 Australian dollars ($29.10 US). No wonder people steal music. Avril Lavigne's record in the same store was $21.99 ($18.21 US).
By the way, when I asked a label rep about this his response was: "It's because we know you have a real core audience that will pay whatever it costs when you put something out - you know, true fans. It's the pop stuff we have to discount to get people to buy."
So... I guess as a reward for being a "true fan" you get ripped off.

its only going to be a matter of time be4 all real/serious artists represent themselves and put out their own music and cut the heads off the record companies! They have fucked the bands and the fans for far too long!
