I'd be very interested to read about that. Got any links to credible "Research" regarding your assertion?


Dodge I knew you'd ask :)

Various research can be found with a simple google search, it was all over the news a few weeks back over here:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/8337887.stm

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1224460/Illegal-downloaders-spend-MORE-music-obey-law.html

I did find a link earlier (BBC) from 2005 that said the same thing. I'll hunt it out later.

The full report can be found here:

EDIT: I'd add that I'm one of this group of downloaders, I much prefer to have the genuine article and have an enormous legit music collection. Between iTunes and CDs I spend about £50-£100 a WEEK on music (which is why I'm so skint). If I choose to sample an album before buying it by downloading it the artist IS the one who benefits.
