Study Finds Downloaders Spend More On Music

A new UK study finds that people who illegally download music also spend more money on music than anyone else. The survey found that those who admit illegally downloading music spent an average of £77 a year on music, which was £33 more than those who claim that they never download music.


  1. Oh Really…
    Then why these dumbass recording industries have not looked really hard into this study and actually believing it to be true?

    Gee, I guess they’re too busy forcing governments to make DRM and other “restrictive” BS laws into their own countries and beyond.

  2. Gasp! I never could have predicted such results.

  3. Another good thing downloading is for
    I’m on a few music Usenet groups right now and there’s songs from around the world that many posters requesting just can not get legally. No one carries it online and the one place that does, does not ship out of their country.

    I propose that if it can’t be obtained in the country the downloader is in, it can’t be deemed illegal to download it.

  4. I think we all know why the recording industries ignore these studies, and that’s because they can make more money by scaring people into settling out of court for thousands of dollars. If they accept these studies, they have to give up the other argument… can’t be a fence-sitter and all that.
