Streaming Won't Save the Music Industry Until 2019, Study Finds... - Digital Music News | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Yes, streaming is reversed avalanching sales stories in countries like Sweden and Norway.  But its effect on the global market now appears limited, at best.

Pierre Priot's insight:

Like it or not: the industry will keep losing money as long as it will try to maintain both physical and digital markets.

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.

Pierre Priot's insight:

may pirates be some kind of enlightened consumers?

Makes think about it diferently. I m not so surprised. It s a part of logic /illogic complexity

Michael's curator insight, April 16, 2013 11:18 AM

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

Mauricio Gallant's curator insight, January 19, 2014 10:19 AM

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

The Sky Is Rising | Techdirt.

The Sky Is Rising | Techdirt. | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

For years now, the legacy entertainment industry has been predicting its own demise, claiming that the rise of technology, by enabling easy duplication and sharing [...] is destroying their bottom line. If left unchecked, they say, it is not only they that will suffer, but also the content creators, who will be deprived of a means to make a living. And, with artists lacking an incentive to create, no more art will be produced, starving our culture. [...] What we found is that not only is the sky not falling, as some would have us believe, but it appears that we're living through an incredible period of abundance and opportunity, with more people producing more content and more money being made than ever before. As it turns out... The Sky Is Rising!

Digital Music News - Study Finds That Wealthier People Steal More Music... | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

The reason richer people download more is more likely due to the technology they can afford – expensive computers, Android phones and iPhones and high-speed broadband (this also explains why most file sharers, according to the research, live in a metro area rather than the countryside).

Pierre Priot's insight:

Sounds obvious to me.

Digital Music News - This Is How Actual Consumers Actually Discover Music... | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

This is all part of a massive consumer research initiative happening at EMI, with the latest pieces recently revealed at SXSW.  On the discovery front, the research shows that despite hundreds of digital discovery options and hundreds of millions invested in 'disruptive' startups, music discovery is mostly happening on traditional radio, traditional TV, and through word-of-mouth.

Pierre Priot's insight:

In the end it looks like video hasn't killed the radio stars.

Count It All: The Actual, Hard Costs of Touring

Count It All: The Actual, Hard Costs of Touring | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
Touring is expensive. My band Enation has at times lost thousands of dollars doing it all the wrong ways. I have talked with other musicians who have had the same problems: working months to get on the road only to be met with a lot of debt at the end of the tour. You’ve probably made some amazing memories and had a lot of fun… but if touring becomes a consistent financial drain then chances are you won’t be able to sustain it.

Are Streaming and Other Music Consumption Modes Substitutes or Complements? by Godefroy Dang Nguyen, Sylvain Dejean, François Moreau :: SSRN

Are Streaming and Other Music Consumption Modes Substitutes or Complements? by Godefroy Dang Nguyen, Sylvain Dejean, François Moreau :: SSRN | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
From a representative survey of 2,000 French individuals, we study whether consumption of music through streaming services, such as Spotify or YouTube, is a substitute or a complement to other music consumption modes such as CD, pay-downloads or live music. Controlling for the taste for music, various socio-demographic characteristics, as well as for the usual determinants of music consumption either offline (radio, TV, friends/relatives) or online (online recommendations, social networks), our results show that consuming music as streams (where the consumer does not possess the music but has just an access to it) has no significant effect on CDs purchase but is a complement to buying music online. The use of streaming services also affects positively live music attendance, but only for national or international artists who are more likely to be available on streaming services. These results suggest that a new music ecosystem is emerging in which the “possession” as well as the “access” modes of recorded music consumption might coexist.
