Music Traders Buy More
from the the-battle-continues dept
Well, here’s another study to combat the RIAA’s continued attempt to take away our ability to share music (in fact, they were still trying to take away our rights, today). Jupiter has found out that music sharing makes some people buy more music than otherwise, and some people less. Overall, however, the net results are that the people who buy more music outweigh those who buy less. They point out that it’s complicated, but all the evidence suggests that music sharing online does much more good than harm for the record industry. Why do I get the feeling the RIAA will ignore this report to their own detriment? They’re spending so much time and effort trying to kill off a great opportunity for themselves. It’s amazing.
