US consumers will spend more on online music than CDs for the first time in 2012, according to the latest study from Strategy Analytics’ Digital Media Strategies service. The report, “Global Recorded Music Market Forecast”, found that total recorded music sales in the US declined by 7% to $6.2bn in 2010, driven largely by a 16% plunge in CD revenues, to $3.8bn. In 2012 consumer spending on CDs will fall further to $2.7bn, more than $1bn lower than the 2010 level. But online music revenues will continue to grow, reaching $2.8bn in 2012, therefore passing CDs for the first time.

To people in the justice system and in the music industry; stealing is stealing. To college students; pirating music is different from shoplifting and is less serious, according to a recent study. The study, done by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, found that while they considered shoplifting illegal and immoral, they did not feel that way about downloading music illegally. This, the researchers say, underscores the problems law enforcement agencies have had in trying to convince people to avoid this kind of theft.
A recent study from University of Nebraska-Lincoln says college students don't feel the same way about downloading music illegally on the web as they did about shoplifting.
Two hundred undergraduates were asked to react to a fellow student either shoplifting a CD or illegally downloading one. Overall, students expressed various reasons, such as morality, influence from family and friends, fear of getting caught, as to why they would follow the law and not steal the physical CD. Whereas with the downloading music, fewer students expressed the same kinds of emotions.
