People Deleting MP3s, Sharing Less... But Hating The Recording Industry More

from the but-are-they-doing-anything-about-it? dept

A new study has come out saying that, thanks to the RIAA suing everyone they can find, many people are deleting mp3s from their hard drives and using file sharing programs less. However, they also have a lower and lower opinion of the recording industry. That's all well and good, but for as much as they hate the recording industry, if they're still going out and buying the same major label music, the recording industry doesn't really care. This is, of course, short sighted, because that hatred of the recording industry means that they're probably willing to jump ship should a reasonable alternative show up. In the meantime, though, the RIAA will declare this as a victory.
