MUSIC FANS DELIVER VERDICT ON DIGITAL VERSUS PHYSICAL: IT’S NOT EITHER/OR – IT’S BOTH! | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

British music industry wants to shut down the Pirate Party’s Pirate Bay proxy | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
BPI requests a swift shut off...
Pierre Priot's insight:

"

THE BRITISH PHONOGRAPHIC INDUSTRY (BPI) has written to the UK Pirate Party and asked it to shut down its proxy server for The Pirate Bay.

Music streaming doubles as plays reach almost 15 billion in a year

Music streaming doubles as plays reach almost 15 billion in a year | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
Data from Kantar Worldpanel showed that over a quarter of adults (26.8%) used a dedicated music streaming service such as Spotify, Deezer, Google Play or Rdio at some point in 2014, with around 1 in 16 adults using the paid tier of one for at least part of the year.

The BPI’s report also revealed a slow-down in the rate of decline of CD album sales and vinyl sales reaching a 20-year high at 1.3 million sales in 2014, as listeners adopt a "multi-channel" digital/physical approach to music consumption.
