Illegal file sharing has declined according to a survey from Music Ally. The survey looked at the percentage of file-sharers sharing music which is now at 17% rather than 22% in December 2007.

The report claims that streaming services are helping to reduce the amount of music piracy online. According to the survey, about 2 out of ten music listeners are using streaming music services.

“File sharing is a moving target, so industry and government policies need to recognize this,” said chief executive of Music Ally Paul Brindley in a statement.
