Download Nation: We Boost Music Sales

A new survey reports that music downloaders actually buy more music than non-downloaders… “A total of 91 per cent of file-sharers download individual tracks, but more than two-thirds go on to buy the album, with even the heaviest downloaders saying they like to own real CDs. Only half of people who download music illegally from the internet believe they are doing something morally wrong. Almost half of the people who responded to the survey were “heavy downloaders” who obtained more than 100 tracks. However, surprisingly, 34 per cent of them said they were buying more music than ever before.”
