Norwegian Study Finds Downloaders Buy More Music

A Norwegian study (translated version) into the music downloading and purchasing habits of nearly 2,000 Internet users found that downloaders were more likely to buy music than non-downloaders.  The finding is consistent with a previous Industry Canada-sponsored study.

  3. It Is True…
    As I have said all over the internet, I spent two years in Thunder Bay for school and during that time I discovered and downloaded a ton of music from the Japanese pop group Hello! Project. When I returned to Toronto I found an import store that had H!P CDs/concert DVDs/posters. Now, a year after finishing school and returning to Toronto, I estimate I have spent about $1000 on H!P things. Yes, internet “pirates” do spend more on legal music…I am living proof of that.
