Music Week - Music Week - Music business magazine - Controversial ACTA treaty signed by EU, rapporteur quits over 'masquerade' | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

"The European Union and its member states - including the UK - have signed the controversial anti-piracy agreement ACTA.

The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), often compared to US proposed bill SOPA, is an international trade pact that seeks to establish an international legal framework for countries to join voluntarily. It would effectively create an anti-piracy governing body."

Digital Music News - Nielsen: 'Consumers Who Engage In Piracy Will Download More Music More Often...'

Digital Music News - Nielsen: 'Consumers Who Engage In Piracy Will Download More Music More Often...' | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Looks like the major labels have another study to go discredit.  Just days after researchers from the European Commission found that illegal downloading has little impact on industry revenues and could be boosting digital sales, Nielsen has jumped in with corroborating information.   

Specifically, Nielsen found that pirates are generally more engaged music fans.  They download more stuff than those playing by the rules.  And just maybe, buy more stuff.

I wouldn't think that just becuase there are more illegal downloaders that there will be more people to buy albums

Media sharing and streaming again has a positive effect, boosting sales all across the board

What I like about this article is that its not all focused on the negative it shows that there might be a positive part of this including an increase in digital sales. It shows that not everything from this bad and that it might not be such a bad thing like everyone is trying to make it out to be. This in my opinion because of the different point of view is a very reliable source.
