Music industry beating the pirates


by David Allen

Could the unthinkable be happening, have the music industry’s tactics and the threat of disconnection from the internet really shocked those people, who have previously been happy to share and download illegal copies of the latest music tracks, into stopping.

Recently released figures would seem to confirm that the message has been getting across and that the threat of losing their internet connection has been enough to shake up the internet users who have in past shared their music.

However, as with many figures, they are always going to be down to interpretation.

The results are based on a sample of 1500 people. Last year 43% admitted illegally downloading music, this year the figure is down to 39%.

There is not much in it, but it seems when the figures look at the teenage computer user, then the figure is slightly up at 58%.
