Illegal downloads by the young drop

August 11, 2009

Is the message finally getting across or is there another reason for the slight drop in the amount of young internet users who regularly download and share illegal music?

Last year the figure stood at sixty three per cent, while this year the figure so far is standing at sixty one per cent.

According to a survey commissioned by UK Music, of the sixty one per cent that admitted illegally downloading music, eighty three per cent also claimed to be doing it on a weekly and sometimes a daily basis.

Yet the survey also found that of those who admitted to illegally downloading music, eighty five per cent said that they would pay up front for an unlimited music download service.

There would appear to be message in there somewhere.
