Illegal Music Downloading Declines

Illegal Music Downloading Declines
 
Buy spotify from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 
A study has been commissioned in the UK that suggests that illegal music downloading has declined this year, albeit only slightly. According to the survey, illegal downloading of music files has declined from 63% to 61%. The survey also claims that 85% of those surveyed in the report would pay for an unlimited music download service. The survey polled 1,808 music fans 18 to 24 years old from across the UK.

Of that percentage that said they would pay for an unlimited music download service, 77% of them said they would also buy CDs. I wonder if these survey respondents are simply more comfortable with lying this year.

The study also claims that 78% of those surveyed would not pay for a streaming service like Spotify. UK Music chief executive, Feargal Sharkey, said: "Over the past 12 months, the licensed digital music market has diversified enormously - epitomised by competition in the download market and the traction being gained by streaming services."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
